You stare down the barrel
Life in all its forms has rejected you
What once was hope for a brighter tomorrow?
Has become surety for hell
Break or make, it bears no importance
As the grave beckons
You pray it be quick and painless
Yet it’s a slow and painful exercise.
A long road has suddenly become a short path
The pinnacle of the journey never reached
As it disappears into the Horizon
You can only imagine what the road ahead brings
For you know the next pit stop for reflection exists not.
Hanging by a thread,
You scream “I want more Time!!!”
“I won’t let go!!!” Death echoes back.
Heaven’s grace tries to bring you back to life
But in death’s grip you are firmly held
And they can never be escape.
Your worst nightmare embraces reality
Out of the shadows it reveals its true form
And retreating with the coming of dawn
Your soul is surrendered at Hell’s Gate
Bringing Hades to a celebration
For once again he has conquered Life.
