I was born to this earth a single soul I've married, had children and now I'm alone I am very confused and my thoughts array I'm becoming unglued in every single way Depression runs deep inside my head and at times I think I wish I were dead Please give me the strength to pick myself up for I must live for my children the ones that I love Copyright © 2009 Steven Cetta All Rights Reserved Image Credit: CoolText.com Inertia4, Selfish, Poem, inertia4poetry

@inertia4 why would it be selfish? sorry, I'm genuinely confused. I think there ought to be a separation between your own identity and the role you play. e.g. My father is not a happy man, but it does not stop him from being a good father to me. Would I prefer him to be happier, sure! But he is who he is, he shouldn't try to be something he is not just because I want him to be different. Surely am also selfish in wanting my parent to conform to my ideals.. I think too often parents feel obligated to become a different person for their children.. and am not sure they should or need to do that

@shaggin I don't know. You don't seem to be weaker to me. I know I don't personally know you, but from the way you write I see a strong woman in you. Life is not fair. Never has been. We do the best we can with what we have. And in my opinion I think you do an awesome job with the cards dealt to you.
