FIRST STEP IS, YOU TAKE CARE OF YOU!

First step is,
you take care of you. . .

your path will open after that. . .
though you’ve got it in your gut
and heart and head–
the reflex
first to help others
in your stead,

but,
once you’ve ensured your own O2
(even from an airplane
falling from the blue),
you’ll have the strength
to help the other passengers
and crew,
and show them
what and how to do,
so they can do the same,

Then,
the power
sure to spread
upon that coming hour
will yield much more
than we will need to mend what’s torn
to sweeten what’s gone sour,
to feed every hungry soul,
accept all kinds into our rolls,
and bring
to thirsty, drought-struck lands
a bountiful rain shower.
