when i get back to normal –
wait – was there ever a normal for me?
if so, how far back would i have to go?
and would i even recognize “normal”
if it hit me in the face?
OK then . . .
after i'm all better –
uh – will there someday be such a time?
when everything is fine, and if there is,
how long will i have to wait
until it actually comes true?
How about . . .
once i am over this –
but – is it really something you can “get over?”
or is it something that stays with me
for better or worse, making me both:
a part of me – for good?
Or maybe . . .
after i've recovered,
when i am restored,
once i have healed,
gone past survivor –
to thriver . . . ?
So . . .
how do you say it
and what does it mean
and when will it be
and how will I know
when it is enough?
Maybe . . .
as good as it gets . . . ?

How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, â€śViolence!â€ť but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
