Surrender

leave each other alone for Christ’s sake
stay in your own lane
it’s do or die
fend for yourself like a gardener
tends to her garden

stroke your wounds
they each require love
they were all fed
starved
spoiled
and hated
in a plethora of madness

tend to your wounds
in this
“war on drugs”
because if we are in a war
with an inanimate object
we had best take stalk of our leaders

when the love of stuff and cheap wine
trumps a love for our own mistakes
then we
will
surely
drown. taking with us all those who inflated our
egos. floating amidst the chaos
