His counselor wants a list

Of reasons he’d be missed…

Why he’s a blessing

Not just window dressing,

And the positive values with which  he’s so kissed.

It’s hard to follow through,

Listing one’s own value…

When employing for years

Personal smears,

In one’s own mind considered more true!

This self-flagellation

Puts a blanket on congratulation…

Thinking thus so

They don’t really know

Facts in one’s situation.

Lovingly changing the mind

Is hard when years being blind…

Unreasoning crap

Keeps one trapped,

So hard to break the grind.

With impossibility is there hope,

A beacon to which one gropes…

Somehow God

When we laud

Him, helps us up our steep slopes!

–Jonathan Caswell
