Hierarchy

Hierarchy

A Poem by Emma
"

Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Physiological needs comes before self-actualisation.

"
It's cold.
Wet.
I subconsciously tense.
Try to burrow inside myself.
It feels good
for it to be hard.
I can see others warm.
I'm achieving.
Nothing amazing was ever easy.
My fingers are white.
Numb.
I want to be amazing.
Air burns my eyes.
I blink.
I remove my coat.
I must have no
weaknesses.
Jaw spasms.
I taste blood.
I felt nothing.
Why do they smile? They're
failing.
I can feel my heart beat faster.
It's accilerating.
I push harder.
I force my arms straight,
lower my shoulders,
rigid.
I can feel heat radiating
off my face.
I remove
everything.
I am the best.
But
it was just the warmth
before death.
I am
Naked.
Blue.
Contorted.
Ugly.
And now I am
Dead.
