Yesterday I spoke to a man. The level of pain, darkness and self disdain was next to overwhelming. He reminded me of someone else. In him I saw the inner likeness of the man I couldn't do anything for no matter how much love I had inside my heart for him. Some people carry arond so much pain and darkness you can wonder how they can stand upright at all.
A sliver of darkness lives in all of us. I accepted mine a long time ago. From time to time I get seduced by it but the days of wallowing in it are over.
Perhaps my fate is to save this one instead of the one who cannot be saved .......
