People in pain

I had a chance to help someone

The time to act was now

People in pain are hard to comfort

When their minds are scattered and slow


Please give me patience

Please make me determined

Please help them hear

Please clear my heart from fear


Sometimes it is fight or flight

I hide from what I don’t know

Am I really the one to help another

This is me slipping on the border


Ok, I smile and give in, nervous

This person’s pain is quicksand

Yes, I will do my best, for them and me

I will give my time to help them stand
