The illness led to the question, “Am I going to become homeless?”
Unemployed and wondering how I’ll pay,
There was a deep fear of becoming homeless,
I was so desperate to find a job that would help me pay,
I didn’t want to become homeless.
My mother was the only one I could count on,
My mother was having a surgery,
I asked, “What would I do without my mother who I count on?”
The fear of living in the streets got stronger with her surgery,
It was so hard to realize that I didn’t have anyone else to count on.
Thankfully, my mother got better,
I eventually became employed,
My life started to get better,
Life started to change because I became employed,
Now I do my best to always give thanks because life is better.
