contained

Contained
by Joann Renee

you see
how it escalades:
if they see
my pain,
it causes
them pain—
doubling my grief

it’s simpler
contained—
the fire still rages,
but on my terms,
my turf—
no one else loses
a home

there’s always despair

but it has constant company
in faith—
seamlessly coexisting
