no one is coming for you

No one is coming for you.
(Doesn’t that sound cruel?)

There is no knight in shining armor
urging his horse your way.
There is no rescue crew
eyes on you.

It’s just you.

Don’t be scared.
You have all you need:
your fire
your strength

No one is coming for you
but

Buckle up
tighten your bandages
grit your teeth
brush away the blood in your eyes
tense your muscles for the run

No one is coming for you
because you need no one.
