Does it Matter?
Should I demand answers?
Or should I beg?
But, what if I pray?
Does it matter what I say?
What is it, you want of me?
Have I not given my blood?
How about my soul?
When will you set me free?
Is there more expected of me?
Should I suck it up - stay strong?
Or, have I done it all wrong?
What more to you want?
Am I tired of it all?
Yes, I am…..don’t you see?
Can you feel the wounded?
Do you feel the pain?

I can certainly relate to pain like this.
I'm sure the people of Haiti just thought they could go through another day- and God- how many of them were wrong?
We are fragile beings who occupy this earth.
There is within many of us a desire to heal the hurts- ours and others.
We are fortunate to be among the healers, but it is a losing battle.
All victories are temporary.
Make the most of moments while possible.
Haunting pain indeed.

A poem about that insane pain.
No-one need put a pathetic effort in to staying strong. Just be the person God created you to be.
And rest, rest, rest knowing you have done all and more that a person can. It is in our weakness that we find strength.

Allow yourself to be human, being loving towards yourself.

We come out of the womb not knowing what we'll have to face until the comfort of the tomb.
