Tell Me

20191225_163322

tell me,

tell me of something,

something I don’t know

or you may be failed 

to make me understand.

how can there be

no words to describe

the hurt,

the pain,

weighted upon 

my shoulders?

yet, I say

with great pride

and gratitude

I am better,

stronger,

and wiser

amidst 

the hurt

and amidst 

the pain

We can all be stronger and better despite all the challenges and difficulties we are facing.
Our world is currently on a pandemic because of COVID 19; and aside from that, there are other pressing issues. The ongoing outbreaks of riots in some cities in the US which resulted in damage to properties and physical violence. Some news organizations worldwide have also reported that there is a significant increase in the occurrence of domestic abuse during the lockdown. These are just a few of the many issues/problems our world is currently trying to win. And not to forget our own personal struggles and battles too. It can be very overwhelming but I am confident we will all get through it.

  5. It all is coming to a head, all the high negativity is unearthing some terrible states of affairs. I pray for those who have abusive home lives as they have no relief. Probably more violence due to the close confinement of many as they can no longer tolerate each other in the same space. Blessings to all and peace out.

  16. Powerful, timely, and important, SweetMich! Thank you for sharing this poem you wrote, and for sharing your words to accompany your poem.

    We must all be willing to listen to others and what they go through…we must be willing to help…we must be willing to be a part of the positive changes that need to happen.

    As I’ve said before, I hope everyone who cares, and those who pray, will not just care and pray, but will, also, put feet and hands and hearts to their prayers and do positive, practical things to help.

    (((HUGS))) ❤
