Checked Out

by Adrian Flores

Sometimes I can’t think straight. My mind so overwhelmed by work and having no one to talk to really sucks. I feel like nobody gets me nobody understands me, people listen, but that’s all I get is a listening ear, I wish I had someone outside my house I can relate to , but I can’t think of anyone exactly. Each person facing their inner sin, I walk into a room and all I get is silence. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve separated myself, I’m not better than any of these men, I still continue to seek truth in the Lord and the people I speak to but here in this house, I’m alone. I know that if I open up about this Ill get no real answer, just a blank stare, nothing to reflect on, no wisdom to rely on, my heart sinks, it’s heavy.
