The Strength I Find - Poem by Andrew Hinton

I awake with tears in my eyes,
Sorrow embraces my heart as it dies.
I can rise and face the day,
But in pain and defeat I'd rather stay.
I've tried to help many a friend,
But to darkness I watch their heart bend.
Alone I could live my life,
Maybe find sanctuary from this strife.
But their cries weigh on my mind,
For them it is strength I find.
But when they turn their back,
The will to fight I quickly lack.
I realize they'd rather have my attention,
Then have to undergo stipulation.
So here I lay thinking of all I've done,
Trying not from my problems to run.
