Many of us have gone through or are going through so much in this life. Now, I am not a religious individual, so I follow no religion. However, I am a spiritual individual & have trust in the power of The Most High, Our Ancestors, & within Self
So much abuse – child abuse/elder abuse/ domestic abuse/self abuse/animal abuse, pain, loss of life & loved ones, sacrifices, mistreatment, unfairness, ailments – physical & mental, poverty – losing your job/not having a job, homeless – right now some are reading this and are without a decent place to sleep, hunger – many reading barely have enough to eat or wondering where the food is going to come from & even praying for another Stimulus Check, illiterate – yes not knowing how to read & comprehend is a silent hell for many, racism, injustice, hatred of self & by others, lonely – no special someone or even surrounded by others but still alone, crime, looking back on the past, while hating your now & dreading your existence day-by-day, not to mention the losses & fears of COVID-19, the list can go on & on and we end up wallowing in the pit of chaos.
I have no magic answers. But what I can say is, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I love all of you. Yes, even though I don’t know most of you personally, lol! So what? So, I have to know you, to have love & compassion for you? No! As human beings, it’s the right thing to do, to have love for your Brothers & Sisters, as we are each others keepers. What we need? People who can listen when you feel the need to vent or cry. People who aren’t scared to say “I’ve been there & I’m sorry you’re suffering.” People who can reach out & simply offer a hug, phone-call, text, or video chat. Maybe you can even share a meal or clothing with someone less fortunate. They don’t even have to know it’s you. I’ve dropped food & money on a families doorstep without them even knowing. I don’t have much, but I share what I can. And if you’re religious? Then keep up your prayers, while trying to physically help someone, don’t just sit there praying all day & waiting for a miracle. Someone can use your help, somewhere, trust me.
We’re on Facebook, sometimes daily or all day. But do we really know the struggles that people are going through? Do we care? Do we even ask?…
Yes, we all have lives, but remember we’re not living in this world alone. There are many on here, who contact me & we chat. Not because of anything, except to have a listening ear. I’ve met some amazing Souls here too by the way. So, my point is, take a moment to ask people if they’re okay. It could mean the world to someone & change a life.
If anyone needs a friend to talk to? I may not do the phone & video thing, but I’ll text you to death, lol! But hit me up on Facebook Messenger, send me an email; firstname.lastname@example.org, DM (direct message) me on Instagram – poetrylanguageofthesoul, or on Twitter -@maxwanette, I read ALL my messages. Give me a moment, but I’ll get to each one.
