I saw it coming.
In that moment of slow motion as it got closer,
I had only seconds for preventions and protections.

I checked my seatbelt was clicked into place.
I slammed on the brakes, I tensed up and I braced,
Breath bated I waited and then it came.

It collided into my side.
Glass shattering metal clattering my body taking a battering,
Then it went quiet.

I realised as I breathed in relief I’m alive,
That despite all I’d done to ensure I’d survive,
The crash had still come and the damage was done.

Some things can’t be won, undone or outrun,
No matter how much you’ve overcome.
They’ll find you and hide you and one day they’ll try to
Make you the wreckage you crawled out from.
