Can somebody teach me?

I do not know how to do this.

Can somebody teach me?

I am not strong enough to learn this alone,

Or wise enough to understand my own heart.

I am not daring enough to face my fears,

Or brave enough to let them go.

Can somebody teach me?

How do I live when all I can feel is grief?

How do I trust when all I knew was a lie?

How do I keep moving when I am stuck to this breaking ground?

Can somebody teach me?

I need to know how to walk through life with my head held high while the weight of my world is pulling me under.

I need to know how to face each day, look it right in the eye, even when all I can see is horror and pain.

I need to know how to live as the grips of death and terror and darkness get tighter and tighter.

Can somebody teach me?

Teach me to be braver, stronger, kinder, more loving, more grateful, more understanding, more accepting.

Teach me to run quickly, feel freely, love fiercely, forgive willingly, open fully, move slowly, breathe deeply.

Teach me to know my up from my down, my yes from my no, my love from my hate, my head from my heart, my past from my future, my war from my peace, my life from my death.

Teach me to live.

I do not know how to do this.

Can somebody teach me?
