I am neither better than a bird with a broken wing nor a snail with a broken shell Damaged in all angles I want to fly, I want to soar Yet frustrated Sometimes I feel free, other times I am trapped I cannot fly, so I stand I make excuses, I try to hide my emotions I am tired of my situation yet I cannot let it out I hide it like there’s nothing wrong It is much more than you think When this happens, please sit with me Listen to my silence Help me sail smoothly One step at a time, so I can learn again to fly.
NB: Sometimes, we think we know so much about an individual such that we take their unreasonable behaviors or reactions for granted. Until we dig deeper, only then will we better comprehend what they go through in their lonely cubicle.
So many people hide their pain behind the visible facade of smiles. Help them heal, take time to be that willing heart, listening ear and a helping hand.
