You must gaze into
your pool of fears
If you fall into a well
of corpses, blood, and bones
sew your carcasses together,
and climb the rotting ladder.
If you fall into a tiny box
with no light and no air
close your eyes and do not breathe
let your soul melt out peacefully.
If you fall into an ocean
and find sharks and no way up
make sure you feed the sharks your limbs
then command them to swim.
If you're lucky, they will carry you to shore.
If you fall into a pit
of high mountains and clouds
jump off the cliff and reach towards the sky
put your head back and say your goodbyes.
If you fall into a room
with no one but yourself and the silence
scream at the top of your lungs
until someone cuts off your tongue.
If you fall into your own home
and see the one you love most
**** them before someone else does.
Hopefully by then end,
you'll swim out as more than a ghost.
And you'll know what you need
to do to make the most.
