Be a Help, Not a Hindrance! Tale Weaver#266

People tell you to show a little backbone

When you’re struggling with much pain.

Buck up, stop whining, and be strong

Are words they say over and over again.

But, in this life, there comes a time

When you just need a little bit of help.

No matter how hard you’ve tried,

You can’t get better all by yourself.

What you need is a kind word or two

And maybe someone’s gentle touch,

To let you know that you’re not alone

When the road ahead seems rough.

Let us bend over backwards for others,

Showing much empathy, love, and grace.

Remembering that in times of tribulations,

Empty cliches simply have no place.

Written for Tale Weaver #266 from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. The prompt is backbone. Sometimes it’s not a lack of backbone why people can’t find their way, it’s the weight of the load and a need for someone to recognize their humanity. Fandango prompt is Bend.
