Let me speak the words on repeat in my mind,
Get lost in the chaos of all I attempted to leave behind,
Yet failed to leave in a pile on the ground,
Above your final resting place,
Where the memories you created for us should stay.
I have been falling behind on these posts lately and although I have been focusing on creative endeavors, opinion pieces are just that. We are asked to look at something, form an opinion and then articulate just what you have to say about it. Every day we all do this, whether it is conscious or not, we all make our opinions know about the news we hear and events that happen around us. This week, I am focusing on a sad event that happened in a Connecticut high school.
CNN: Connecticut teen accused in slashing death of classmate charged as adult
What are the things you most admire,
All the things that have been done or just dreamed about,
What is a life without action, it’s wasted,
For we only have this moment right here and now,
If there was a time that came before what we remember now,
Should we go back to try and recreate those things,
Or keep moving forward looking for something more?
Life can’t be the way I see it,
When I turn on the TV screen,
All of the hate and murder,
The things that drive the good away,
It leaves us all empty and wanting more,
Is this the world we live in today?
Death sucks! Yeah I know what an opening line right. We all have to face it and deal with it throughout our lives. We not only have to deal with our own mortality but also that of those around us. I recently lost someone close to me and although I didn’t think it would affect me much, I was wrong. It is hard when you care and love someone to know that they are gone. Life is about living and doing, but death, that is just it, it’s death, it’s final.
