    i come in each morning

    and it begins


    this one's man is
    a functioning alcholic

    that one's husband
    is suicidal and
    the prozac ain't helping

    and then
    this brotha's wife ain't
    gave him none
    in 6 months :confused:

    and

    another one got
    grown children moving
    back home

    with the grandkids
    in tow

    another one has
    a loved one with
    a terminal illness

    and there's always
    somebody who
    got somebody
    in jail....


    all this
    when i hit my office

    and i ain't even
    seen a single client
    yet....


    sheeeeeiiiiiiiiii.......

    and then..

    you take a long, deep breath, breathe it right on in, and then breathe it right on out, very slowly..and start a new day with a smile on your face....

    and then you LOOK around seeing someone else looking around just like you...

    and then you REALIZE that life is what it will always be.....

    and then you SEE the life beyond silent clients.....

    and then you FIND out that without those things looking around would just be plain ol' looking around....PeAcE
