With all the practice,

all the teachings,

all the concepts of selflessness;

sometimes, all you can do is weep.

     Knowing, that no action can stop the horror before your eyes;

     nothing you can do nor say will stop this brutality from taking place;

     sometimes, all you can truly do, if you really wish to help, is feel.

Days pass and experiences are etched are carved into your being,

and you weep; you weep so completely for those that suffered.

     Sometimes you know that the next step on this path;

     the one that is being asked of you,

     will make sense to noone around you.

     It hurts; deeply.

You feel their sense of  abandonment and confusion.

You feel it as your own, because it is.

     I won’t pretend that I know how to explain this path to you; how I take steps

     that seem to be made from two-left feet; because I don’t.

Sometimes their simply are no words that arise from the heart; so none can be


Sometimes, my steps, will cause you to weep.

But always, they are with your heart in front of me.

    Some things and actions are so deep that they simply cannot be explained to others… x
