A sad thought
A kind word,
A toe tag.
Is that all I amount to?
Is that all I am?
No family meets me
They won't have me.
My possessions in a box,
My whole life contained in one small vessel.
But what can I do?
What can I do now that the darkness has me?
Takes my every would-be breath and steals it from me.
I can't fight back.
I can't tell them of the wonderful things I have done!
I can't tell them who I am.
And all the people who could are gone,
Pushed away by dirty, selfish hands.
No congregation, no eulogy.
I lived once, and loved so dearly,
But all of that is gone.
Light fades from above me as dirt is piled on.
But now I am looking down.
Down into the dark abyss of my grave.
Did I deserve this?
Do I deserve this?
I look up and see a light above me.
Do I deserve to ascend?
Or am I damned to descend?
I put my head high and walk.
I'll get where I am supposed to be.
What does it matter?
I have forever now.
