Problem

Just sayin’, “no problem”, does not help.

There is a tendency to dismiss

problems, by suggesting they are not,

what they are: an issue to deal with.

Time and time again problems remain.

Unless trouble is responded to,

these issues will not resolve themselves.

Just sayin’, “no problem”, does not help.

Unacknowledged problems will fester,

and will generally thwart success,

issues can make circumstances worse.

Problems annoy, but just pretending

they have no bearing on the future,

is like sticking one’s head in the sand.

“We have a problem” is helpful,

Confronting problems aids to solve them,

creating a container for them,

making possibilities likely.

So, admitting there is an issue,

truly halves problems and doubles joys.

Assistance creates advocacy.

“We have a problem” is helpful,

Stopping and dealing with the issue

makes it viable to find a way.

Sharing problems fosters real answers.

Facing the dilemma forces us

to be engaged in the solution.

If not fixed, at least mended or healed.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
