‘Go’

by Angus Forbes

STOP.

You don’t want this.

I said
STOP.

It’s not worth it.
You don’t need to
Prove yourself.
Every second you
Hurt yourself more.

You could
Stand up.
Walk away.

They won’t think
Less of you.
They want to do it
Too.
Want to
STOP.

They’re too
Scared.
You have
Other things to do.

Other cats to
Whip.
STOP.

A cup of tea at
Home.
Warm shower.

Why are you still
Here?
STOP.

You’ve stopped.
You hit your
Target.

Well done.

Yes, the
Tea will taste better now.
