little girl

little girl
can’t you see the world isn’t going to hold your hand forever?

don’t you know no one has the time to sit, and watch you grow?

little girl

why must you stay so little?

so dug into the ground as to
disregard the air trying to
get into your lungs?

where did you leave your strength?
to whose doorstep did you abandon it
because suddenly it seemed so hard to hold?

what is dissolving you rapidly
into these chunks of your old self?


we can’t watch you squeeze your own hand to your own throat
when your other hand can save you

so save yourself

there is a world inside of you

you can’t kill it

before its had a chance to breathe
