Made Alive

But it seems crushing
To come alive
And feel so much pain
And all at once.

It becomes hard to separate
What hurts come from where
And the temptation
Is to flee.

As if you could escape
As if that were even an answer
But though it seems a poverty of choice
The weight of it still presses in.
