To die of your crime
To pay more than a dime
For a resolution
That will be the solution
Say your last good byes
For your ties
With those you love
Will never bond again.
This is your reflection
For your face is seen in rejection
Prepare for your defining definite death
Your last moments lay ahead
You see the wooden platform ahead, 
The sharpened axe shines with a glare of light
For you are now dead.

The author's comments:

   The reason why I chose to write these poems in the style of an elegy is because I felt that I wanted to express the feeling of sorrow and sadness. The poem I created shower meaning into the reader's mind. For example, the section in my poem, "Death Sentence", has a part "defining definite death". That part has a streak of alliteration. The phrase helps the reader feel the action rise. The ending of that poem ends with your death occurring. The 2nd poem I created here is about a man who can be either young or old which is up to the reader to decide. He lives alone  while travelling the world to find a home, with the thing that fills a home. I like 1 part and that is the line "Himself". This line is all alone, like the lone soul  of that of the man the poem speaks of.
