Survive: FOWC with Fandango

Written for Fandango: https://fivedotoh.com/2020/08/28/fowc-with-fandango-survive/

I pray you survive

When I think about  
the last fourteen years 
and all of the places I’ve been 
the people I have met 
those who have had an influence  
on who I am today 
I have certain people who I care about 
that I think about 
that I don’t always talk to 
who are there for me 
while I am there for them 
and they know who they are 
because that is how we are 
and it is at this time 
that I pray 
that my friend 
my sister 
will survive 
all she is going through 
despite the pain 
despite the desire to give up 
and to give in 
to the cards that were dealt 
which are those  
which I would like to take away 
so that she may continue to live 
for the valuable person she is.
