Poem: Descent


Today, I learned that

Forests will swallow you if you let them.

They’re wide and long and darker than you think and

If you go up, you will have to go down and

it will hurt, like Hell and you’ll feel sick

and it will be okay.


Because, look, listen…

if you’re lucky, you’re not alone.

And if you are, you might not be forever

If you keep walking and looking and

you might not get out but

if you have to suffer,

Suffer with purpose.
