Surrendering

The only person who wanted me alive
Washed his hands of me
As I am gently pushed up a sloped drive
The truth relinquished any further fight

A cheerful women breaches the doorway
I almost smiled to my self
My frightening thoughts were interrupted
I try to ignore the prodding sunlight

Hunger gnawing at my insides
The nurse coaxes me from my bed
Forbidden bread that triggers trepidation
My stomach wonders what that does?

“Rest now you must be tired”
I’ve nowhere to go, nowhere to run
My head feels heavy
My eyelids win the battle of consciousness
