He inhaled one last time
A small tear let forming in his right eye
It was unfair
The world unkind
But in his sad life he couldn’t rewind
He couldn’t get back
All he had lost
Although he would have sacrificed anything
No matter the cost
He lay there
As the blood dripped from his veins
And flailed slightly
Before passing out in the rain
What a terrible sight
Of darkness and despair
And how unfortunate that no one was there
The night was the only witness of his passing
A quiet event that had no lasting impact
The world just kept turning
People living on blindly,
Not learning.
