People who live in pain

People with jobs, people on the dole
people who live, people who dream
people who forgive, people who hold a grudge
people in schools, people who trade
people who journey with you, people who judge and pity you

No surgery, no stretch, no drug will break

this cycle of pain for my or your sake.

The months go by, my life on break

why do I feel people think I'm a fake?

TV, sleep, books, chocolate, prayer and far too much personal space

is this the life I was born to endure and face?

In a rapid moving world, It feels serial to stand by,

and watch family, friends and the world move speedily by.

To the healthy my life is different

and I know they don't know why

but I ask you not to pity me and only

wish my pain goodbye.

Instead would you wait with me and

let me share your strength for awhile.

But if your only here to well wish me you

are only dabbing at dry eyes.

So I understand why you can't always wait with me

as your world is much too fast to stand by.

But I will know how to wait with you

If your world holts or turns slow like mine.

For I have had time that you have had not,

to slow down and resist the world's chaotic flow.

A waste they say? Is life really wasted by living it slow?

Talk to my Heavenly Father and He will plead my case.

Yes, It is he who has brought winter and my life to wither.

Yet He knows and has shown me that only through death

can life be made afresh.

I live in His promise of caring me through this slow dying life death.

I am dead in spirit yet alive in hope,

Dead because I know I have lost my place in this world's play,

but alive because he has given me this gift of breath for today.

I have pain but pray tell me what is your element of gain?

: loneliness? poverty? disability perhaps?

We each have one and if not now will be granted one.

For there are few guarantees in life and trouble is one of them.

When you are handed one remember that in the midst of death of

the normality of life THERE IS STILL LIFE!! and its worth living for.
