Nothing Left To Give - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

I am dying here, climbing this event
with a broken leg, arms broken also
and my head is gone, my mind has
changed to froth - and my heart is
shriveling, I have no power left

Everything I had to give, courage,
determination and courtesy, is gone,
can't go on, nauseous, despondent,
my head bursting into flame - the
pain of conflagration stopping me

I dream about escape, to flee, to leave
the disempowerment, disillusionment,
I have nothing left to give…
