a little grace and a little compassion


what if someone snaps at you
or seems a little sharp
or seems a little or overly sensitive
maybe it’s not about you
maybe it’s about them
maybe they had a hard day
maybe their boss came down hard on them
maybe traffic sucked
maybe they have a full plate
maybe they are overwhelmed
maybe they do not know what to do
maybe they are flailing
maybe they are searching for direction
maybe they are having a hard time finding it
maybe they do not know where “there” is
maybe they do not know how to get “there”
maybe they see no way out
maybe they hoped things would be better off
maybe they feel like the weight of the world is on their shoulders
maybe there was one more straw
maybe the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back
maybe it’s a cry for help
maybe you can answer that cry for help

a little grace and a little compassion

    Grace and compassion is what we all need, it seems some people don’t know what that is though until it is given to them. Love your poem. Hope you are doing good sweetie!

      thank you. i appreciate your sentiment and know it to be heartfelt.

      it’s been a couple of hard months and my brain hasn’t been working well enough but to rarely string together words into sentences and paragraphs. that sucks. maybe it getting better because least i am starting to be able to do business correspondence and rarely things like above. hopefully that points some writing to return.

      wishing you and your family all the best.

        I hope life gets better for you and you can see daylight again soon. I have missed your writing. I hope you have been shown grace and compassion as you show others.
