Everyone has questions

Even those who should have answers

And I’m supposed to know

The information they seek.

I don’t even know what to ask.

I only know I’m lost

And I’ve been put in charge

Of something I can’t control

Or deal with.

I pray to God for strength

And I pray the people around me

Not to press

Not to yell

Not to add to the guilt I feel

Or expect me to satisfy

Their wish for a reasonable plan of action.

I don’t have one.

But when I do

I’ll let them know.
