ALL THAT’S LEFT

It’s all that’s left now
Await what lies ahead
Sit with the Silence
Stop my scared
“How could they do this”
agonizing
Clear the path
Lose the fat
Walk barefoot

Shut my mouth
I’m not a child
Lifes not fair
I’ve known that for awhile
Heroines don’t have comfy lives
I’ve fought against
the tide
Hated the tsunami
I saw rising

It’s what is left now
now that I’ve begun to whine
An unpaved path
I was given
but criticized
Now I’m left
to get to know
my messy excrement
It is what
is left
to me
Now
