"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."

The End
