"I NEED HELP."
I screamed it from the mountain top,
and it echoed all around me,
clattering off the rocks walls and
ringing through the valleys.
It rebounded and it struck me and
I fell to my knees,
tears streaming down my face.
"i need help," I whispered--
and somewhere, someone called,
"I CAN HEAR YOU."
And I heard that small breath
even through the rain in my head
and I thought,
"Maybe I can learn to breathe again."
