Inner Strength


A colleague approached me last week and asked how E was.  
She went on to say,
"I don't know where you get your strength..."
My inner voice answered
"I don't.
I can't."
but I heard myself reply,
Coffee and cake."
Definitely, but I needed to lighten the mood;
I wanted to keep the doors to my heart closed
and the truth unspoken.
Because it's not always necessary to share your burden;
sometimes there is nothing else for it but to 
keep moving forward,
one conversation at a time.

Flippant has its time and place - use it as you see fit. She was probably grateful for your light reply.
