patience reflected – Poems about CPS

Posted by Gerry on September 15th, 2011

One part of the job
Families in crisis now
Healing through the team
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 09/26/07

On supervising other people

Guidance comes when it
Is given through listening
To your direction
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 09/26/07
I learn things really
fast because days grow shorter
patience reflected
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 01/25/08
I have determined
All that arises passes away
I have determined that
I know nothing

It is easy to determine
What time it is. It is always now.
Now I have everything

Attention here and now
Compassion emerges when sadness merges with joy
Only those who have transcended the world can make a better world
<><><><><><><><><><><><><> 03/05/08
When we start with pain
where do we go from here?
If children have been hurt and their parents are filled with guilt and fear,
where do we go from here?
Stories of events are just that – stories.
The events that transpired
are known to the people who were present.
Yet even though they saw and heard and felt the moment
they are only able to tell the story from their own limited perspective.
The role of anyone who would intervene
in the lives of the troubled
is to listen and be present
to receive what is shared.
The role is to give comfort and acknowledgement.
The role is to listen.
To listen carefully and with skill.
