How to Save A Life

Anger, brother of fear

I bid you hello

Emerging self

Climbing the same weary stairs

Up and out of the basement

Where you live.

What did they do

And why did they do it?

When you’re in your body 

You feel its pain, age, ache…

Always the why

An unending return

To that sinking feeling

That this is not a metaphor

And this is really happening

Has happened

Will continue to happen 

If you don’t figure out

How to save your life.
