Poetry of Stephanie Bennett Henry

Safe Route

I don’t want anyone who chooses the safe route, the shortcuts, the cop outs. I want the one who knows what my spine is made of, but will still step in to fight for me before I have a chance to say a word. I don’t want the person who lays low and let’s everything slide. Bring me the one who isn’t afraid to douse the fire, instead of the one who stands there to watch me burn.
