Inspiring – Written November 2006 (Aged 31)

Inspiring

i spoke to someone today
somehow inspiring
the pain lifted
how the seemingly ordinary
are somehow so gifted
they told me their tale
the storm subsided
and i managed to sail
with the support they provided
they explained what had happened
to their own little girl,
i nodded in agreement
i know the feelings well
i wanted to talk for hours
unload my thoughts and feelings
just to this person
who had experienced much the same
the pressure, the labels, the pushing
and of course, the pain
i spoke to someone today
somehow inspiring
and i told my tale,
and all this, it felt so much less tiring
