SIRENS are WAILING

SIRENS  are WAILING

 

the sirens are wailing

they're coming for me

not the cops but the medics

MEDICS

I don’t need the medics

the sirens are wailing

I don’t want to go

I made a mistake

there’s no need for the ambulance

the sirens are wailing

WHY WON’T THEY STOP

PLEASE MAKE THEM STOP

they never stop

the sirens are wailing

I took a bunch of pills

and now

and now

the sirens are wailing

I am not unstable

I am not depressed

I do not need to go to the hospital

so why

so why

the sirens are wailing

I am not a harm to myself

I am not a harm to others

they won’t stop

oh why won’t they stop

the sirens are wailing

I am not anorexic

I am not suicidal

kind faces peering down at me

asking how I am

such a weird phrase

I AM

what am I

who am I

I am

I am

I can say what I am not

what am I

I HAVE TO HURRY

I HAVE TO FIGURE IT OUT

CAUSE THE sirens are wailing

I’m running out of time

gotta figure it out

I am

I am

I will figure it out

I am figuring it out

I am

I am

I am

the sirens are quiet

so quiet

I am relieved

I am thankful

I am happy

I am free

free from the sirens

free from the pain

I am me

the only solution to the question

who are you?

who am I?

so many answers

none of them correct

I am who I am

the sirens are wailing

wailing

wailing

wailing

they’ll wail right past my house

no wailing allowed here

I am free of the sirens

no sirens needed at this street

you’ll have to keep looking

no sirens needed here
