A Port In The Storm

When I say I understand,
it's because I do.

My understanding stems from
an experience that I wish
I never had, but we all get little
choice over such things.

All I can do is try to make the best of
what I have been given in my life
and use the lessons I'm learning
to try and pass along my wisdom
and my understanding to those
who need it.

As I make my way
through this imperfect and
sometimes perilous passage,
I sometimes need a hand from those
that have walked the path before me.
I gain strength from their kindness,
and the courage to keep going.

A strength, a courage, a faith
and an understanding
that I hope I can gain and project
for those who might need the
same support I've grown to
know over the years.
