The Battle

The Battle
I saw this lady standing on a ledge,
about to jump
that’s when I said
Hey! You! Wait!
what’s the problem?
She said “I got so many, a lifetime couldn’t solve ‘em”
She was meek, about my height and frame
That’s when I proceeded to ask her name
She looked at me as if I already knew, 
I asked if there was anything I could do
“Wait, talk to me, maybe I can help”
She said “go away, it’s between me and myself”
I said “NO!”  “try me, tell me, what you gotta say?”
She smiled and said, she can’t go another day
“I gotta go, because my time is near,
besides, no one really wants me here”
that’s not true, I do, I want you to stay
somehow I know GOD will make a way.
It was true, part of me needed her here
for some odd reason I was really sincere
we need to understand what we’re blessed with 
and to know that our lives are special gifts
she smiled at me as she agreed
somehow I felt this was my need
I stood there with something different inside 
the joy and peace like I had saved a life
I looked up, the lady was gone
I stood there on the ledge all alone
she didn’t jump she must have run away, 
embarrassed or something about what I had to say
I thought about calling her name
hers and mine was one in the same
Then I reflected on who she could be
why she looked like me, why I couldn’t see
That all the time THIS LADY WAS ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
