Every day I meet people in crisis
so many who never say a word..
and yet there daily life
holds drama and hurt!
And I wonder
why does pain cause some to curl up
and struggle to move...
and others to fight their way out?
and in truth
don't both way cause some destruction!
I am a doer!
I handle by doing..
when life hits me hard
I hit back,
because I must!
If I did not I would falter and fall..
and so I 'do'!
Sometimes I don't stop to think or even feel..
But, then I speak to those
who hurt and feel
and some days cannot come up for air!
and I wonder?
is that a gene?
is that something we learn?
Does one get the 'depression' gene
and another the gene of 'denial'?
and another the gene of 'escape'?
because sometimes 'doing' is an escape!
I learn t years ago
that what had felt like overcoming
was really my moving on..
and the result was events
that brought me right back to the place
where I had to stop, feel, hurt and then move on!
And so, I just contemplate
life and hurt
and the way we survive it!
I know that one size does not fit all
but I do know that we must move through it!
And I guess when all is said and done
as long as the end result is health
the process becomes
and the method used
just a tool...
as long as ultimately the result is the same;
