Exist / Poem

Exist (written by Sarah Bennett)

there are days when I exist solely for myself / that is not to say the past has not happened / only that I hold my own hand / the girl at eleven / fifteen / twenty two / I smooth back her hair / I tell her we are okay / I make her a cup of tea and say what she does not know / not everything is your fault / not everything hurts / not anymore
