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