My Continuing Pledge


Sometimes, the sudden pain is just unbearable.

Knowing that you hurt triggers something primeval and cataclysmic deep inside me. I am nearly always at a loss. Yet every living cell, every gathering breath that I draw in, quickly conspire with my brain to shut down every other objective and accomplishment.

I need to fix this.

I need to set your world – and mine – to rights. That is my charge, that is my duty, that is my unalterable obligation.

And so I’ll remain, right here, right now, my heart forever etched in this moment. For this is my continuing pledge: to help you fix what has been broken.

Trust that it will happen.
