"Never to Steer"

The following is a free verse “poem” I wrote after reflecting a bit on the journal entry from 11 April at the university farm:

Never to Steer

I sit here and wonder where else I could be,
Saving lives the only way I know how,
Being for someone else the
Scott Westerfeld, Jane Austen, and Cassandra Clare
Who saved me,
Teaching others in the way literature taught me
Never to fear, never to tear, and from the light

Never to steer
