Poem For Pain

"Pain and suffering may often seem to be calling
us to jump in and fix things,
but perhaps they are asking us
first to be still enough to hear
what can realy help,
what can truly get to the cause of this suffering,
what will not only eliminate it now
but prevent it from returning.
So before we act,
we need to listen."
