Under dim lights 

Submitted by Lucinda, Senior House Officer

Under dim lights 

On nights


When woken with fright, 

I write

To make sense of the plight,

This fight 

For their right 

To simply breathe 

Firing down thoughts 

 to learn lessons not taught 

These battles hard fought 

Of an invisible foe, 

this constant onslaught

Until the day when those dying is nought

We must do all that we can do 


if I could 

I would 


my breath 

to you
