Safety Net

God (Inspired by)

Hold your ground;

it won’t be long now.

Don’t run away

because you’ll only

find your demise.

You can’t control yourself

because your body is weak,

your heart is breakable.

Lean on me

and I’ll be your reason

to survive.

I’ll keep you alive

until you’re ready to die.

You are not alone.

Even if you try to escape

I will catch you when you fall.

I will cushion the blow

even if you jumped.

You are not beyond saving.

You are not untouchable.

I will reach out my hand

and hold you.
