Souls in search

I truly feel for all these souls that enter this door
seeking relief from their pain
be it psychic pain
or physical

they are in search of healing
some from the inside out
and some from the outside in
sometimes both

I wish there was something I could do
other than offer my ear to hear their stories
or offer a smile to lift them up
I could have studied to be a doctor
welding instruments to aid me in my craft
instead I am a receptionist
a greeter of the crowd
one who speaks softly
not at all loud

I truly feel for the people who come in through this door
some asking for nothing and others looking for so much more
medication or a counsellor for their pain
and I remain here
as they come in
answering questions to determine the shape they are in....
