[Poetry] “For Grandpa: How”

For 할아버지 & my grieving heart

Tell me how you get out of bed
and walk with led-heavy legs
To live the life you need to live
How do you do it?
When your bones rattle
When morning light
mocks your mourning spirit
When grief keeps calling
for your company
Is there a secret trick to all of this?
Is there a way for me to do it too?
