The Spirit caught me
Or maybe the Spirit
Catches me

Either way I always Fall
Down
The rabbit hole way further

Than I knew existed

My Fall is not
An easy one
I hit speed bumps
Every which
Way

I've been left in a
State of hazy
Confusion

But I am not dead
The doctor's told mommy
I would be by now

Yet here I am
Fighting still,
Head held high

With pride
Cause I am a miracle child
Eyes wide open

Each one a testimony that the
American Medical Complex
Isn't always the answer

Isn't the only
Answer
At the very least

So divorced from humanity
That they forgot we
Are spirit first

And
Body
Second

And some fates are worse
Than death
Some alter destinies for more

Than one
Lifetime
Heaven

Forbid they try
That same nonsense
On me again
Not Hmong
But Still
....
