Untitled (Pep Talk)

The flames lick at your feet,

the heat unbearable,

and it seems you shall never

take a breath again.

In the face of great pain,

no bandaid can restore

that joy that once resided

in the deepest crevices of your heart.

Move your feet,

adjust your stance,

don’t stomp on the flames,

as that will only serve

to enrage them further.

Instead, keep your arms out

to steady yourself,

and learn which broken bones

to heal first.
