How Can I Help?

How can I help you

when I cannot help myself?

I don’t mean to enable you,

but I do.

I don’t mean to encourage you,

but I do.

I don’t want to ignore your bad habits,

but I do.

I don’t want you to use me,

but I do.

I see all your issues

lying out in front of me,

looking me in the eye,

but I cannot stop them

when I don’t have the energy

to face my very own.

I’m a mess,

but you are too.

How can I help you

when I cannot help myself?
