Stop to Ask For Directions


Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and admit when you need it.

Charles Schwab

When I’ve travelled a million miles
Inside my own head
Find me
Help me


Is there no way out of the mind?

Sylvia Plath


How can I know
When every day is a single question
And I have a million answers

…Stop…
…Ask…
…The direction is help…

The scope is skewed
Comfort to the masses
And power is imbued

  1. I think that at one time every boy child was labeled as ADHD by teachers who demanded that 1st graders sit stock still for hours at a time… Now I think the diagnosis has narrowed and the criteria become much less subjective!! (to everyone’s benefit) Love the first poem!!

    1. Exactly. They are children after all. The best amongst us have trouble sitting for hours. And we don’t have the wild energy or imagination of a child.
