wrong question

We ask ourselves whether
it’s better to
do for others
than
teach others
how to do
for themselves and…
it’s the wrong
question;
is it better
to be grateful, or
confident…
free
or dependent,
because much of helping others
is absorbing their
responsibility
authority
accountability and
pain
but we know, we
KNOW
that without pain
there is
no change
none
so
not teaching
is
damning to
an endless
cycle
and saying to them
here,
let me save you this instant of pain
so it can
last a lifetime.
