Suggestions - Poem by Noemi Lee
When I tell you what is in my heart
DO NOT tell me about some diet/pills or book that you truly believe will help me.
Help me what?
Grin and bear it?
When I express to you the pain I'm feeling
DO NOT tell me about how much worse it can be
You just might cause someone
To feel as if their experience meant nothing.
Don't do that.
When you tell me you are praying for me
Are you really?
I mean seriously?
Are you praying that …
My symptoms improve?
I am healed?
I stop complaining?
If indeed you do pray
Please pray to understand.
