You just can’t help
You watch
Those people you care about
Make decisions
Get stuck
In places you’ve been
You know you have to
Let them
Drag themselves out of the muck
As much as you want
To lend a hand

You watch them
Get broken
Get defeated
And flash back
To your own tragedy
Such a long time ago
And such an expansive distance
Between those memories
And now
How you understand
How easily they got
Entangled in the plot

There is nothing
You can do
You just have to wait
And hope
That they make it
To the other side.
