I’m broken and shattered.
Dreams are watered.
Plans that have faltered.
But I am still healthy. Yes!

I’m hopeless and helpless.
I’m totally penniless.
I’m anxious and restless.
But still I’m optimistic. Yes!

I’m busy but have little work.
My friends think I’m a jerk.
Responsible but yet I shirk.
But still I am reliable. Yes!

I have unanswered questions.
The usual stress and tensions.
But I know that this is life.
And everything will be just alright.
