Admit You Need Help

Posted on Friday, August 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

I just finished writing this post.  I hit the “Save Draft”, but there was a disruption in the wireless signal in this coffee shop, and it was all lost.  [Wow, I almost did it TWICE.]

Since all next week will be dedicated to learning how to help one another, let me stop here for today.

Listen to U2’s song One as one person tries to figure out how to receive help and give support to someone else. Admitting we need help and knowing how to help one another is always a challenge.

This is OURsilentscream!

“…Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love and you want me to go without.
Well, it’s too late tonight to drag the past out into the light.
We’re one, but we’re not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other… one

Have you come here for forgiveness,
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head
Did I ask too much, more than a lot
You gave me nothing, now it’s all I got.
We’re one, but we’re not the same.
Well, we hurt each other, then we do it again.

You say love is a temple, love a higher law
Love is a temple, love the higher law.
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And I can’t be holding on to what you got, when all you got is hurt.

One love, one blood, one life, you got to do what you should.
One life with each other: sisters, brothers.
One life, but we’re not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other.
One, one.”
