Psalm 82:3


My sixth grade teacher showed the class photos of teenagers 

Comatose from drugs

Overdosed 

With death at their doorsteps

And she didn't understand

Why I started crying so loudly 

If only she knew

I just couldn't quit 

I thought I was next

Maybe then

She wouldn't have yelled

At that already-fragile 12-year-old

Who didn't know what to do
