Searching for a Cure

I talk to someone

every week

in search of a cure.

She sits opposite me

with the intention

to reassure.

She thinks she

understands because

she has read

a lot of books,

but I have too

and can see

beyond her pious looks.

A life’s experience

is worth more

than any theory,

no one is the same

and we all arrive

with a different story.

Platitudes are

not the answer

when you are

feeling down

while empathy

is important

but best offered

without a frown.

Someday I might

find what it is

I’m looking for

and who knows

it might be today

on the other side

of this door.

  1. “Platitudes are
    not the answer
    when you are
    feelin down”

    Preach! I’ve always found platitudes trite and useless.
