You were caught in an avalanche. To be rescued, you need to make it through the night. What thought(s) would give you the strength to go through such a scary, dangerous situation?
Under the snow, under the rocks.
Under the mud that I believed I’d return to.
I thought of nothing but survival.
I thought of nothing but revival.
I counted my breath,
I gulped in precious air.
And when rescued , I screamed ,
“Why the hell couldn’t you get here earlier?”
