Silence extends a hand

          to help the diffident up…

lifting Words of Truth

          for those who’ve had enough.

Time does not devour,

          but strengthen this quiet friend;

in the face of temptation

          He will never bend –

for after all has settled down…

          I hear the Faithful beside me,

Waiting for me to still-

          To listen to Him speak.

Choosing The Ambulance

Unknown hearts
extend their hands…
to offer
this injured help up.
What do these heroes think
when I pull back,
only accepting the familiar?
Curious I am
of those who
do not wait
for an invitation
in the midst of an emergency…
can they feel my pain?
And out of their strength
give me a fraction
of a portion?
Why am I selective
on where I draw
support ?
