Donít

Donít look at me too closely
or watch what I am doing.
I might slip;
I might stumble;
I might fall.

Donít hold high expectations
or think Iíve got it made;
I am weak,
Iím still fragile,
Iím not whole.

Donít cherish preconceptions
of how I ought to act:
what I should think,
how I should feel,
what I should say.

Donít assume that now itís over,
that I am back to normal;
though I am better Ė
Iím not ALL better,
not yet well.

But if you want to walk with me
and pace your healthy stride
against my stumbling steps,
supporting one another,
to lend each other strength...

Then
we can travel
together.

thanks, guys!
good to know others have that going on, too.
i wroted it for several reasons -

to my wife after our big melt-down. i haven't shown it to her yet. still too touchy a situation.

also how i feel in a mentoring situation with a young man who has some of the same issues as i did when i was his age.

also really feeling shaky at school right now.

and just how people in general - with no knowledge or experience of our struggles - treat us

of course - probly no one but you all - and some day my wife - will ever see it!
