stop. drop. roll.


stop running.

stop worrying.

stop everything.


drop to the ground.

drop your possessions.

drop everything.


roll anyway from the fire.

roll away from your fears.

roll and don't look back.

until your in the clear

    Would speak in more than just short texts

    Before I knew they talked behind my back


    I gather rocks and stones
