Tag Archives: empathy “inside”



I usually write this as “he”,

But “he” refers to ME!…

And in this case

I’ve seen the Lord’s face,

Or it seems so to me!

“Love your neighbor as yourself.”

How often I put myself on the shelf…

Refusing hearing

Any positive bearing

Messages about myself.

A thunderstorm broke o’er the land,

Psychology and God hand-in-hand…

On that psych ward

Empathy toward

Each other broke ego’s commands.

Saints continued to pray

All the time I was away…

Answered prayer–

I became aware

Of reality being okay.

The wife says she sees a change,

No longer easily deranged…

Some says it’s meds

Clearing the head,

But I say there’s God in the change!
