Emergency Poem

c. FEWalls

This is the poem to carry with you for emergencies,
like the spare batteries and extra gas you pack
when you drive into the wilderness.

When you discover you are lost,
you can press any word in this poem
and walk beside calm waters.

This poem does not have
water, food, shelter or energy bars but
courage is hidden in every line.

Before you crumple up this poem,
(feeling danger in every direction),
remember Love’s gift to you:
your next breath.
