What are we supposed to do?

Sometimes the words miss
Or the energy is wrong
You ain’t got the background
Or you’re not tuned in
Sometimes you’re in a playful place
And there is pain on the other end
I got this yesterday:
“Left only with the question,
What are we supposed to do?”
And, you know me,
I’ve got an answer to that
Navel gazing is my specialty
I replied something
But you know what?
People don’t need answers
I’m learning that much
People need open hearts
We don’t need the right philosophy
So much as someone who cares
You got that?
