Going Through It Together

The best aspect (okay only) of being sick? Examinations of Conscience. Inactivity makes one introspective and fear makes one reflective. I haven’t been as good of a man as I should have been. I should have been a better friend. Now I sit in waiting rooms alone and I know:

I’ve known people who were sick and I didn’t help them.

I’ve known people who were confined and I didn’t visit them.

I’ve known people who were alone and I didn’t sit beside them.

I’ve known people who were afraid and I didn’t soothe them.

I’ve known people who were troubled and I didn’t even ask them how they were.

I’m glad I’ve felt it.

Now I’ll amend my life.
