The Bye That's Not So Good

Updated on August 12, 2017

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 death's face has not shown

A sign that she is alive

Looking back she sees

Her life full 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 its last song

A melody that makes her cry

Heaven or Hell?

She can't really tell

where she will spend her eternity

Afraid she will 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

Here soul is now gone

The battle was not one

Her body she will leave behind

Searching now with spirits lost

Nothing was worth the cost

Answers to questions she will never find

      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.

      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!
