Get Up

by Lara Wilson

Get up.

Just get up.

Everything hurts, so what, get up. You have to get up.

Get up or it's over.

You're only eighteen. You're not ready for life to be over.

So, get up. Get moving. Prove you're alive.

Wrist broken. Two teeth knocked out. Blood in your throat. Eye swollen shut.

Doesn't matter.

You're alive.

Get up.

Moans and groans fill your ears. Your senses come to life. Pain is nearly unbearable, but you will bear it. You have to. Others need you.

Others always comes first.

Ignore your own hurt and help them.

Save them, save yourself.
