24/30


After failed attempts to vomit your discomfort

You crawl back to yourself

and wait for your words to perform surgery on you

Something has been breaking off inside you

You are made of your mother’s resilience

and your father’s quiet sturdiness

You do not understand why your body cannot shake this off.

Savior complex tied up with fear of vulnerability

and a poor diet is another way of dying

There are no smart guides for dummies who

should know better than to try fixing themselves

You should know better

to make room for faith to be sang back to you

Everybody needs saving

even Jesus had God.
