Original Poems

A Plea

Times when I need help
I will want yours
And will deeply appreciate it

Other times, when I must help myself
I will need your encouragement
Or at least, not your discouragement

And they’ll be still other times, when nothing at all will help –
Then, I will need you to listen and to try to understand
That some problems have no solution, and that
I must learn live with them

To help what can be helped;
To encourage where no help is possible;
And to console where no encouragement is possible

Or

You could

Tune out everything I just said
