Favorite Quote:
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds. -Bob Marley


Stillness robs your body of life
You lay there on the white sheet
Screams and tears
Monitors and eyes
Racing to save the life
To save your life
Your children and family
The friends who always had your back
Your dog that stayed when you cried
Your lover was there when you were terrified
Your life is on the line
They rush to save it
To save everything that was once
To save the smiles
To save the laughs
To save what was your life
The monitor went dead
The noises went dead
Dead as you
The salty tears flowed
Heads dropped
You lay still
You are now a body
No life
You’re gone
Stillness
