How Long, Oh Lord

I am so discouraged
My soul is slipping away
The only part left is a shell
I act as if nothing is wrong
I chuckle when appropriate
It's a fake, a façade of sorts
What I want to be
What I was once
It seems so long ago
When I kept it all together
Life wasn't perfect
But, it was fun
People lifted each other up
Helped one another
Oh, it feels so long ago
Now only a deep dark hole
No stair, no light
At least that's what I perceive
Where are my answers
I pray, I believe, I hang on
How long, oh Lord
Will I hang on long enough
