This Life

This life is written.
This life has been determined.
This life is worthless.

This life doesn't ask for forgiveness,
nor does it ask for sympathy or empathy.
This life doesn't deserve what it has,
for there are many others that it can help.

This life will be forgotten.
This life will shed tears.
This life will cause turmoil.

This life watches...
This life watches you in the mirror forevermore.

A pretty depressing way to think about it, but maybe a little true.

Ah, the truth. The sad and painful truth.
