When I Awake

To cars crashing.

To the body demanding fluid relief.

To children crying.

To eyes that refuse to weep.

To burning oxygen.

To lungs clouded and diseased.

To buildings collapsing.

To hunger that never weakens it grip.

To a world of pain.

To the morning light which shines a new dawn.

To anything

that says I’m still alive.
