You feel the tension mounting;
You watch confusion reign.
You say you don't know what is wrong,
You wonder if you're sane.

Your dreams, you don't remember,
You just want to withdraw;
Since there are no easy answers,
You just build another wall.

There are some who see things clearly,
Of those, I am now a part;
Not because of what I share with you,
But because I listen with my heart.

And it's sad to see you struggle,
Trying hard to find your way.
I want so much to help you,
But there's nothing I can say.

For you must find your answers,
They're all lying deep within.
And if you listen to your soul,
You will find your heart again.

Deanna, I really like this poem. I can definitely relate... it is hard to see a friend struggling to find the truth but you are correct that there is nothing you can do. Everyone has to discover their own truth or how can it be real to them? Thank you for sharing this poem.

Nicely done. I like the way it flows. Gentle and supportive, with a relative message.

this poem really made me think about the truth and by seeing someone one else struggling to find the answers, you see your own answers.

I've been in those situations (so frustrating!) and liked the way this was written.

I really appreciate everyone's comments. This poem was a result of the frustration that comes from having to take a passive role while watching someone close to you struggle and suffer. Richard, you could learn as much as your brother, the choice is yours!

a lovely sentiment and so very true, we can truly only ever help ourselves when it comes to finding our way in life

If I had my mouth I would bite.
If I had my liberty I would do my liking.
In the mean time, let me be that I am, and seek not to alter me. ~Shakespeare~
