Safe if not sound.

Survival is all.

By Peter RosePublished 11 months ago 1 min read

Good and bad have no meaning when everything seems lost, when hunger drives the body to forget its soul. To survive becomes the consuming desire and all is justified to that end. Scrabble in the river mud, fingers seeking protein eaten raw. Disgust and squeamish horror have all gone, stilled by that demand, the need to survive and tell my story overcomes all else, I had taken days to get this far. The river water saved my life, and its creatures fed my bodies need. The flow downhill gave me direction enough. My warning in time to save us all.
