How to Ask?

For every day, I sit and contemplate

Through my trials

I have learned to be nothing but free.

No constraints or deals were ever made

Simply because I did everything instead.

Never have I ever asked for help

Simply because I could not pay the price.

My pride has always been but a leash

Upon my neck and my feet.

No one has ever offered to show me genuine concern

Since all they want is a piece of what I can return.

Till this day, I am imprisoned by my own flaws

So how do I escape and how do I ask

For what is seen to be the hardest question of them all.
