How many people know how it feels to go 6 days without a shower
because it is too hard to get up
step in wash step out
dry off and then re-dress?
To struggle to answer the phone call from Mom
because you haven’t ate
or even went outside;
there are people out there and she would
w o r r y.
Wonder at what point your hopes
leaving you with nothing but shattered wrists
and an over-flowing soul.
Do you know the existence where all you feel is
If you don’t
and if you do
I’ll pray for you
if you pray for me
even though I don’t even believe in
g o d.
