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

master


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

ready

for the next chapter


it tells you

through your feelings,

no need to overthink it


the warning signals are messages

of preparation,

reciprocated

anticipation


nervousness can be excitement

for what life

has in store

for you,

when you don't overthink it


feel through it
