Told You So

There can be no
I told you so
As you look upon
My life

Now peaceful
And improved

Every inch
Was fought for
Face in the dirt
Pulled from strength
That did not exist
Taken from a reserve

I did not have

Every bit of progress
Destroyed parts of me
In the getting

Not passive
Not by any stretch
 
Not look
And see
How it all

Worked for good

But rather
Look and see

How tenuous
Life is

How dark
Life can be

Look and see

How we are all
One step away
From any outcome

How there are
No guarantees
For any of us


Regardless of
Which prayers
Are said
And how often
 
There can be no
I told you so
None

There can be only
I don't know


I don’t know
How they
Survived

I don’t know
How they learned
To breathe again
 
I don’t know
How they live
So well now
After all
That has been
Endured
