A Helping Hand

I lay on the floor, bruised and wounded
Separated from the world, alone and stranded
With a dose of misfortune that Lady Luck had handed
I prayed to God for an oasis before I am buried in the sand
Just when I thought that all hope had ended
She came up to me and offered a helping hand

All my life I’ve lived in gold
But not a penny I can hold
Now that my heart is growing cold
“Don’t come close to me. There’s dirt all over my hand.”
Acting like nothing was ever told
She came up to me and offered a helping hand

Everything comes at a cost
All my young thoughts
Had suddenly been lost
Just when I thought there was nobody on this planet that can help me understand
Untying all my knots
She came up to me and offered a helping hand

I swore under the pouring rain
Not to trust a girl again
For it causes nothing but pain
Just as I thought all the love in my heart was about to end
Amidst the pouring rain
She came up to me and offered a helping hand

Never had such a fall
None that I can recall
Found myself up against a wall
All I needed to go across was a loyal friend
Promising me to give her all
She came up to me and offered a helping hand

  1. I’m not on WordPress anymore, but an hour ago this post (beautiful poem) of yours showed up in my email. Can not believe how uncanny it is. Thank you.
