Don’t Help!


Your dramas are not mine
nor do I need to solve
your problems or needs.
Do good, help others
our religions teach
yet there are times
when we need to let
others work through
their own life experiences.

I need to consider
carefully my need to rescue,
to go from one drama
to another–my own and others.

There is a balance needed
in this issue of helping…
discernment mixed with
compassion is the key.


  1. I love this! I have learned over the years to only help those who cannot help themselves. Otherwise, let them crawl out of their own mess or they will never learn from their own mistakes. After all, that IS how we learn 🙂
