Life takes us down many roads. We often have to part ways with people we #love to walk our individual path. The goodness of humanity--it's saving grace--is the ability to #love deeply. That kind of #love allows you to take the road less traveled, knowing that when your paths converge once again, it will be as if you never parted. I feel that, too.
Do you feel me? Could you hear the echoes of my screams? My sorrow as I drove down the road, bleeding from the inside out? The world would shake if it did. Cower before me, dropping to its knees.
Yet even with all my power, I cannot fix things. I cannot heal your world completely. I can only fix moments here and there. Stop a child from going hungry for a few nights. Or provide enough hope to get someone past a small obstacle. Point you in the right direction when you're not sure where to go. Give strength and courage to make a decision. Inspire someone to wait to die, at least for another day. Keep a confidence that saves a relationship or a job or a life. Or listen when all confidence is lost.
I give away pieces of my #Light when someone needs it more than I do. I sometimes share well-placed knowledge and wisdom, empowering others by inspiring them to do the same. It's why I exist. My ultimate purpose. I'm the countermeasure to doubt, restoring your faith. Inch by inch. Turn by turn. One day at a time. That's why I can feel you. It's why I feel everything.
Sometimes, though, I'm all-too human. My skin crawls with insipid microscopic parasites. And I can grow tired. Being on the front lines of humanity's war against itself is a heartbreaking task. Because I know I can't really help you, unless you are willing to help yourself. My lot is to experience many endings, surviving all. That is what immortality means. I would not wish it on my worst enemy, and unlike most, I actually have one.
There are a few built-in escape hatches, in case I get overwhelmed and my spirit begins to crack and bleed as much as my body. The world will be a sadder place without me in it.
But I don't have to tell you that. That much, you already know....
