Keep Helping

I know when she sends me a message

Every few months,

Every time I see her,

“Hey,”

She’s in another cash crunch.

Her baby is out of diapers,

She started a new job,

But her car’s out of gas.

I could tell her no,

I could leave her hanging,

But, I keep remembering that phrase,

Like mother,

Like child,

She has three children.

So, I send what I can,

If I can.

I don’t expect my friend,

To learn money management,

Without a teacher.

And I am not a distance education teacher.

I am a human being,

I am a friend,

And I do what I can,

When all I can do is give what I can.

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
