• "I see what you don’t. Write about things least spoken of. Speak less, listen more. Watch less, observe more. Know more by learning more. Attach less, detach more. Be seen less, remembered more. And believe that less is, in fact, more."
  • "Today, organs can get replaced but no one has found a replacement for lost trust, abandoned hearts, shattered souls and tears that flowed. Imagine that!"
  • "Life is not a straight line. It is a circle. See you a-round!"
  • If you do not wish to cross the bridge when you get to it go ahead, take a boat... either way, cross over, you will have to."

Fix Me

Have you been there?

Where you want to help all you know?
And don’t know?

Take everyone’s troubles away?
Of all those near and far,
Your neighbors,
Neighbor’s neighbor even?

The neighborhood schools,
Children struggling to learn…
Children from broken homes…
Children abandoned from homes…

Those who have been abused…
Who felt suicide was their only recourse…

The people you see on television,
Who have suffered tragic accidents,
A loss of a loved one, a loss of a child…
Lost a spouse or even lost a bike!

The ones in the subway, looking lost for the ‘E’ train,
The ones on the streets, who cry as they walk through the icy winds,
The ones who let their tears fly by or even freeze…

Have those flying tears ever reached you?
Splattered on your skin?
Have you felt that twinge…deep, deep within?

Have you been there?

When you just want to give warm clothes and blankets to every homeless person you see,
Pick up every single puppy and stray dog struggling to survive,
Empty out shelters and give them all homes…
Feed the hungry, not only by stomach but even by eyes?
Hungry by soul?

Have you been there?

Has that hunger hurt you too?
Has the loss bothered you too?
Has the hopelessness eaten at you too?
Has the dreariness of it all kept you awake too?

Have you been there?

Tell me you have…
And I’ll just ask for one hug… a real one… not the one you spell right..

I’m there…

And now I need to fix me!
