Fragile Difference

If all I need is Strength and Ability
to character my soul to breathe
then there is no need for Another

The two solemly enter
the gates of the Other
to cover me as I lay
whispering words
to be well
and to love
for we know
I can not do it alone

Indeed, we can do very little alone. It's good we don't have to.

Thanks Pearl
I was thinking of spiritual poverty and a need for God but your words made me recognize a very real need to turn to other frail humans for help too.
