Ability Reflected

at this moment
i am not sure what change i can affect
does it matter if i try my best?
what is the value of my self respect?
am i swimming
or falling from an empty nest?
at this moment
i am not sure i want to do this any more
what difference can i make
when all around me is likely to break
it seems to me,
that a working week is too much for some
i am not sure,
what battles are ever won
what can i do,
when everything around me refuses to work
i am left to drown my work based sorrows
in some kind of hopeful flirt
i am not sure,
that this way or working makes much sense
or if i can actually affect change
or even make a difference
