I Will

I feel so lost
depleted
broken

Everyone seeks me
for a listening ear
for answers

All the while
they never realize
that I am more of a mess
than they will ever be

But I will
listen to their woes
heartbreak’s
anxieties

I will offer
all that I can
to bring them relief

But when all is said and done
and they go on about their merry way
I will stand alone
just as broken
as I was

before them
