Instructions

If I forget
Remember
To sit me down
Tell me to just sit
And breathe.
If I ask a question
Over and over
Frustrated
Frustrating
Don’t answer
Just sit me down
Remind me to breathe.
I won’t ask
What I should think about
Or what you’re thinking
You won’t ask
What I’m thinking.
It won’t matter
What I’m thinking
If I sit and
Remember to breathe.
If I forget
Whatever I forget
Right now
I remember
What I ask
And who I ask
To remember
To remind me
To sit
To breathe.
