Self-care or Selfishness?

I shut my eyes so I don’t see living skeletons,
of momentarily dead bodies.

I convince myself that it’s not cowardice,
but responsibility;
my toddler deserves a mentally healthy mom.

 I allow myself to hide,
and I persuade myself to live,
even as infants inhale their last breath of oxygen and rubble.
