Tour Guide

I think
What was hard
When people
Tried to comfort

Was that
They tried
Too hard

They felt pressure
To say
It would all
Be ok

When it wasn’t
And wouldn’t
Be so

They felt compelled
To take the lead
On rebuilding
My old life
When I
Had to build  
Something new

They become tour guides
Intent on quickly
Walking me through
The pain

When the truth is
You can't guide anyone
Quickly or slowly
To a place
You haven’t been

 
And who is willing
To provide company
On a dark journey
They cannot lead

Who is willing
To be a fellow tourist
On a trip
With no tour guide
Straight
Through the heart
Of hell
 
Who is willing
I will tell you

Not many
