When darkness crept into your mind
Did you think to turn to the light

When the arid air strangled your voice
Did you turn to the water

When your foot pulsed in discomfort
Did you discard the pebble

When your heart panged in loneliness
Did you seek relief from another

When your sufferings seemed unbearable
Did you lose yourself in service

When pains gathered at your life’s gate
Did you expose them
Did you unlatch the hinge and release them
Did you watch them flee and draw relief
Did you warn others through your writing
Did you unselfishly share this victory through prose

Did you?
