POEM| Still I Try

I feel like there’s nothing for me here
but still, I try

I try to help people when I can 
I try to read a new book every week
I try to keep a smile on my face
I try to learn from everyone I meet

I try to do great at work
I try to love myself more

I try to keep up with my friends
I try to tick things off my to-do list

I try to have fun 
I try to get things done
I try to show up
I try to never give up

I try to be happy
I try to stay sane
I try to be optimistic 
I try to stay alive
