Poetry Friday

Watching Good People

I’ve been humbled of late
By the strength of my friends,
By their down-to-earth grit
As the wheel of life rends.

There is beauty and poise
In their waltz with despair.

But it isn’t inspiring.

It’s simply

unfair.

In just about every area of my life right now, there is someone I know and care about facing something that any one of us would characterize as beyond overwhelming. I'm amazed by the strength and determination of these wonderful people.

But that doesn't really help anybody. And it doesn't ever stop me from wishing that I had a magic wand.

Nice. And a lovely sentiment.
