Poem- Do You Care?

I feel heavy, overwhelmed.
It seems everything is against me.
I cry onto you for help.
Are you listening?
Do you care?
Perhaps you do, but for someone else.
Perhaps this is happening to me, because you are answering the prayers of another.
So I struggle.
I lie to myself that this is what’s best.
This is part of your plans for me.
But I am not David.
I am not Joseph.
What destiny is there laid out for me?
Am I Job?
Or perhaps I am no one.
The unspoken, unnamed, people.
The fodder that supports your cast.

Struggle
