Throwback Thursday Poetry: Last Wishes

look inside this life of mine
to find the reasons why i died
some would say the way i lived
brought about my unholy end
but i think the path i chose
was the best one, that’s what i know
so to you who hated me
i’m gone for all eternity
anyone who cared that day
when i died and i went away
though few of you there may’ve been
i hope you remember again
this sad life i fought to keep
and i lost so miserably

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
