The Bye That's Not So Good

She takes the hand

She doesn’t understand

This is the last goodbye

She won't face death

Nor take that final breath

She isn’t ready to die

She fears the unknown

For nothing has shown

A sign that she is alive

Looking back she sees

Her life of greed

The life that passed her by

She sees all the hate

Choosing her own fate

She wonders why

She can't hold on

Life plays that last song

A melody that makes her cry

Heaven or Hell?

She can't really tell

where she will spend her afterlife

Afraid to be judged

Holding on to every grudge

She finally decides

Regret is all she knows

Pain is all she holds

She says her last goodbye

This is really good. I loved it. It's like you left room for people to really think about their life and what their outcome will be by the paths they choose. Two thumbs up!

It is very sad when a person gets to her condition. Tomorrow may have brought a better day. You've put it across well here Fullerman.
