Nobody can save you

Cuz they don’t know how to

Life deprives them of humility

Inundates them with superficiality

Materialism and individualism

Survival is their methodology

Love is the enemy

Nobody can save you

Cuz they need saving

Incurable pain tragically imbedded

Consequently they self-destruct

Keep your distance

Cuz they’re on a demise

To each their own

But the coffin has handles

Sickness needs empathy

God is always busy

Still they send you to God

Cuz they’re judgmental and lazy

Have you checked your circle of friends lately? What about your loved ones? If the worse happens, can you rely on your friends and family members to care for you, to love you, and to understand your conundrum? Life is always changing and we have to learn to be practical beings who understand the reality of inevitable change.

We will not always have jobs, or robust health. There will be trying moments where illness, job loss, and other ills will saturate our lives. It is necessary to surround ourselves with people who know how life works versus those who perceive life to work a certain way. After all, perception is different from actualization. Every being cannot hold great paying jobs because there is job competition. Everyone cannot make big money on a job; because businesses usually offer low salaries to remain financially afloat. Additionally, as we age, our minds and bodies are recognizing this progression. Essentially, our bones become brittle and pain sets in, and our memory is not as strong as before.

Throughout these changes; one needs support from others. More specifically, a version of care that is not judgmental. Empathy is also needed to help someone who is in their declining state. Faith is a great resource to those who believe, but we have to stop giving God everything and learn to use faith to fix uncomfortable situations. Being a resource to others is the broad definition of having faith.

Finally, how we respond to current situations will determine the outcome of circumstances. In his many speeches before his death; Dr. Amos Wilson, a psychologist, said that there is no one in this world who is an individual. Each of us is connected to a group of people within a culture, and religion, and these individuals operate as power points. Essentially, he was saying that there is always enough man-power and woman-power to help us get through difficult moments.
