Survive

IF it came down to it

A choice between – you – and I

I would see it in your eyes

First, the flash of panic, like you have to make it out alive

Then you contemplate me,can live with yourself –

If you allow me to die …..

But don’t worry

I wont allow you that option

Wont give you the time

I don’t think about it anymore

So I throw you off the line

 

And I do what I have to do…. to survive

    • Thank you much Jal. The poem was when I was contemplating how far I would go to survive, or to help my family survive! Some people think it is odd or barbaric but I think all of us in some way do things to survive we might no be proud of.
