Barely Alive 

  
On that elevator 

I meet everyone

Alive

Barely….

Walkers walking…

With walkers

Tennis balls gliding

Them closer to 

Their destination

You can smell oldness

Feel their loss in the hallway

I try to cheer them

Lighten the load 

You can’t carry anybody elses burden

Burdens have to be cast away

Cast off

@%&# off!!!!

I feel the despair

Wanting to slap them

Out of their silence

Screaming Shut Up and LIVE

Dear God

Get a Grip

B4

You

Fall and can’t get 

Up

And

Kick the Dust

With your

Good old leg.
❤️
