SERENITY PRAYER
(7/9/18)

"that doesn't
help at all"

she complains

"saying it
doesn't solve
my problem"

the entreaty
was never intended
as a solution

more a bit
of emotional
triage
to frame
our dilemma

a question
to shift
our perspective

the answer
most often
is acceptance

but she
doesn't
want to hear
that

she wants
me
to fix something

something
broken
long before
I met her
