A pair of blue hands leaning on each other, with their nails painted neon pink.

Drown

I don’t want to be your hero,

When I’m barely getting by.

The candle burns at both ends,

And I’ve become too spent.

It’s like trying to save someone from drowning,

Just to be pushed down.

Perhaps it is cruel

But eventually,

You need to learn how to drown.
