Buried/Alive

Your world collapsed into a cloud of chaos and dirt

and yet, you are stirring

the weight of everything is pressing

you down like an iron on a rumpled shirt

and yet, you are rising

clawing your way through the hurt

the light far above is only a flicker

a sliver glimmering

yet, it is a whisper of your worth

a blessing on your work

as you gasp

and you flounder

grasping for the sky

praying to be released from this sin of earth

as the wall of soil begins cracking

you are breaking through

you are breathing

finally free to begin living
