Poem For A Person In Despair 

Today, like so many other days,
you stare at something
so tiny that others cannot see
how it floods you with defeat.
Your muscles feel shriveled
and of no possible use.
Convinced you have been abandoned
by all resources inner and outer
you feel certain only of your aloneness. 

There is a hand inside your hand.
It was never beaten.
It is meant to reach. 

There is something to reach for. 

Call it what you will
a handle, a tail, a thread,
a burning bush, the hand of a child
who is willing to trust you. 

It is there. 

What you are waiting for
is waiting for you.
When you touch it,
it will not flinch. 

You are not alone.
Someone has loved you.  This is true.
No matter how far away or long ago
they love you still. 

You have been waiting for their hand.
Reach for it now.

It is there.   
Have them sit beside you
so you can breathe
and smile and do. 

Listen to their message to you.
Listen one thousand times.
Listen till you hear it. 

You are allowed to be beautiful.
You will not fail.
