    As I sat there
    On the shores of the river life
    Basking in the sea of serenity
    I observed a French Maiden
    Walking the cobblestone streets of
    Quebec City
    With drooping shoulders
    And emptiness for eyes
    That cried
    Years of torment

    I
    Asked
    “May I be of assistance?”

    “Please!”
    She barked at me
    “If not for emptiness
    would you have asked me”

    “No.”
    I had to agree
    Coz…in being free
    We are free to be
    Weighed down
    By burdensome voids of
    This CAN’T be
    We haul around
    Everyday

    Her thinking
    “I didn’t care”
    put me at a
    disadvantage
    having to prove my
    SELF
    True

    Me…
    Of a different hue
    Extending my hand
    To have it rejected
    In spite of herself

    In the end,
    She accepted my help
    But promised me
    If asked
    She would not deny me
    She would somehow make it up to me

    I believed every word of her
    Still
    I referred her to GOD
    Saying;
    “take it to the LORD in prayer
    …my sister.”

    As she went on her way.
