The Comforters

Rating: 5.0
Until thy feet have trod the Road
Advise not wayside folk,
Nor till thy back has borne the Load
Break in upon the broke.

Chase not with undesired largesse

Presumes to dwell apart.
Employ not that glad hand to raise

This poem is so wonderfully vitriolic. It displays true sympathy while deriding those who feel they just have to help. It is difficult to watch someone in pain and do nothing, but often enough the only thing you can do is give them space until they are ready. I am certainly that way, and this poem helps me remember it when I see others grieving.
