Go to bed with pride

It’s okay. Do the bit you can.
You’ve done the hard thing anyway.
You’ve quenched the writhing, burning man.
It’s okay. Just survive the day.

Your shadows rising in the smoke
Will fade to shimmers of your steam.
It’s okay. Voices that provoke
Will not withstand your silent scream.

It’s okay. Go to bed with pride.
You did today the best you could.
You chose to face, instead of hide.
So, go and take the rest you should.
