New Poem: Save Your Own Self

I wrote this poem when caught in a mix of negative emotions- part indifference, part sadness and pity, and part anger. What do you say when someone won’t help themselves and blames you for their plight? Save your own self…

You put yourself in a glass cage
You are strong enough to break

You cry to me to free you
I won’t

I don’t want to be cut on your glass
Those aren’t my scars to bear

Break your own glass
