Weakness…

I know
the path they take
the decisions in their mind
I know and can’t stop it
I see
The hurt, the pain, the disappointment
I see it and can’t help
I want to stop the world
be the hero
be the savior
but I am too weak
only strong enough to lean on
big enough to support when asked
How I wish I could peer into the future
To hear the words that will be said
To know what to say when the time comes
How to make things right
But I’m too weak
I can only summon enough strength
to stay in
to not run from the hard things
to walk with them
to not make it about me
or even about them
but to allow it to be
what it can be
if we walk together
in weakness

  1. I so relate with what you’re saying, Ken. I especially like to the last part ~ so true!
