Fallen to the frail, desecrated figure of none other than Death
What of life
To be it nothing more than a shell of lost expectations, and diminished potential
Why are the rest finding a chance?
To be given choice other than pain and remorse
To live every day without looking in the mirror
Knowing who they are
Their capabilities
Their future
As we stare in the mirror
Asking every day, what we have become
What has happened to this world
To see our form as frail as Death
The mirror shattering through venting
And pain found no more within us
Our knuckles bled that day
Only smiling at the pain
It has always been there to comfort us
Never felt by those with a future
Or a choice of what they are and were
To not run from marked pasts, or lingering choices
Lingering in the back of our minds as we attempt to sleep that night
Let it be said Death may be cruel, but not as cruel as the life once lived, or the life to be lived by others
I don't even know...
