What If Explicit

Do not bury anger towards parents,
differentiate between what you are
and what you were taught, and find small substance
within that breathes life behind childhood scar.

Know that you are alive and wish to live,
that what you are in essence will survive
a shipwreck. You are an orphan restive,
and to realize this your true self will thrive.

Sense body, sniff and hold breath, look at light,
stop thoughts and feelings, count numbers in head,
sense back of neck and its wordless insight,
sense sexual energy up spine thread.

Sense of humor - to know what’s important,
observe the observer is life’s present.
