emergency management (free verse)

close your eyes

soften the gaze

the feeling of slavery is an illusion

a limitation

"i have to do this

for this"

you are your own master

you are your own slave to your


now, are you really, then,

a slave, or

a companion

an advisor to your master

an emergency management

peace officer

no need to govern emotions,

and don't let your emotions govern you

journey with them

through the experience

of test drills and alert systems

your body just wants to feel


for the next chapter

it tells you

through your feelings,

no need to overthink it

the warning signals are messages

of preparation,



nervousness can be excitement

for what life

has in store

for you,

when you don't overthink it

feel through it
