Survive

When you want to shout at people,
Because you’re hurting and they’re not.
When they’re in the party
And you’re far from it.
When they can’t stop their laughter
And you can’t stop your tears.

When they’re afraid of sharp things
Yet carry their tongues in their mouth.

When they can’t keep blades out of reach
And neither can you.
When you take everyone’s blame on yourself,
And not fix a thing for anyone.
Let your eyes speak and ease the pain.
“Survive”, they say, “Lights will guide you home.”
