Self Help

Why is it that at my most depressed,
At my greatest feelings of loneliness,
All I want to be is
Alone?

Why, when I most need advice, help,
When I utterly despair of my own devices,
The only one I trust is
Myself?

I suppose experience has shown me
On whom I can rely at any and all times,
When I cannot allow for
Failure.

In the end, with enough time, thought,
I believe the answers I must find
I’ll find by turning
Inward.

Not nearly often enough do I remember
Another option that should be primary:
Truly, I need only look
Upward.
