I want to help!

      I know the burning rage,
I feel trapped, as if in a cage.
There's nothing I can do, 
I wish I could stop you.
You've put others on a shelf.
You try to solve your problems yourself.
You grab something sharp and start to cut,
girl, you ain't in that big a rut.
Why are you doing this, tell me please!?
I'm your friend, your pain, I will ease. 
I will wait until the end of time.
I'll take your problem, and make it mine.

    You sound like a caring friend. Your friend is lucky. Most people just need someone to listen to them. Thank you for your comments. Peace, Shari
