• Anne Sweet

No way out

When you are swamped with emotion

when you can see no way out

when the fragility of your humanness

lies broken open before you


There is nothing to be done

except be there

without running

or justifying

or explaining or avoiding


Just be there

and allow life

to shape you

and mould you

and change you

and refine you

and burn away

your falsehoods

in the only way

it can.
