Reality Bites

Reality came crashing in on me today.
I needed someone, anyone to help.
My problem wasn't that serious or life altering.
But what if it had been?
To whom would I turn if a real need arose?
I decided to take inventory for future reference.
Alas, when I ran through my lists of family, friends, and loves,
for one close by to help in a time of crisis;
a cold realization slammed into my consciousness.

I have only myself upon which to depend.
Oh I have friends in far away
places with families who need them.
Friends with lives of their own, little time for me.
And suddenly I was scared! I am all alone.
