Wake Up

Wake up little girl, you’re too far gone, plant your feet on the ground and start walking

life has changed so quickly, time is a blur, things may never go back to the way they were

take heed to the lessons this crisis is teaching, decide to take action, stop side-stepping

be urgent, stop thinking, life is too short, stop wallowing in what continues to hurt

I know I should be gentle, allow change over time, but aren’t you tired of drinking the same old wine?

anything to numb, keep things on the surface, it hasn’t been working, find a better purpose

please do this for us, as difficult as it is, choose to fight the fight, choose to live.
