Lifting us up

by Shreya

What should I do
besides trying my best
to save you from falling.
I stare at the wire
On the ground
I stare outside the window.
You want me to smile
I’m not frowning either
I’m wondering
what I could have done
and can do
to support you
and us,
and to bring us
to the peace
we’re looking for
all around.
