Poetry Monday: Overcoming the Burden

when death is upon you
you feel the surprise
your hands cold and clammy
you hope it’s not your time
your elegance is fading
mystery is in your eyes

what will you do now
a sensation you can’t describe
the feeling of letting go
these feelings you try to hide
you can’t throw them away
you can’t lock them inside

with the struggle within
your hope is not alive
what can be done
you’re hurting other’s lives
the madness must end
you decide in your cries

nothing can break you
nothing makes you change
the horrors you’ve fought through
the horrors of your rage
nothing will make you
nothing can break change

you decide in your cries
the madness must end
you’re hurting other’s lives
what can be done
your hope is not alive
with the struggle within

you can’t lock them inside
you can’t throw them away
these feelings you try to hide
the feeling of letting go
a sensation you can’t describe
what will you do now

mystery is in your eyes
your elegance is fading
you hope it’s not your time
your hands cold and clammy
you feel the surprise
when Death is upon you
