“Savior”

i am nobody’s savior,

a mind-freeing conclusion

i’ve been forced to come

to by the harsh realities

of life in this world,

people struggling all

around me, trying to keep

their heads above water

and all i can do is shout

words of encouragement

from the shore, hoping

they figure it all out

and somehow learn to

swim in the midst of

their thrashing about
