 Poetic Verses

It's not time




Distantly I feel the call, it pulls at me as if to say
come with me you're better off, if here you do not stay
It nudges me with subtle lies, telling me it knows me well
promises to hold me close, my secrets it will never tell
Closer it steals to me, the words now ringing in my ears
take the step and follow through, forget about your fears
Icy grasp touches me; the frigidness takes my breath away
numbness starting to settle in, my insides start to decay
It tells me not to worry; this pain will not last long
Beautiful music faintly heard, this must be deaths final song
Everything starts to become unfocused, bleary eyes no longer see
I start to follow along; will this be what finally sets my mind at ease?
Trapped for so long in a body, that has long since given up
limitations causing discord, while vital organs start to erupt
This would be so easy, give up and just let go
but, in my heart I realize, this is only one scene, not the finale of the show
So while it may be easier, to just slip away quietly in the night
I've never been one to give in, without putting up a fight
Fought for life since day one, a competitor since birth
giving up is not an option, so I'll fight for all it's worth
Life is not an easy task for anyone to endure
trials and challenges every day, with someone else always keeping score
But, still I hold my head up even when I feel I can't do it anymore
living for the moments that show exactly what I'm living for
Little moments that bring me joy, sadness that has broken my heart
the knowledge that the world keeps turning, even when what you love departs
I'll see their faces yet again, even if they are only in my dreams
no time left to wait for things, that in my mind's eye go unseen
Time to live like never before, no limits, no inhibitions, no regret
no more will I be a puppet, someone else's marionette
I choose to live for only me, for as long as I have left
It could be a day, month, or many years, but each day will be my best
Everything I do I'll give my all, I'll love with every ounce of myself
passion I will live and breathe, reservations will be dispelled
It's time to show what I'm made of, look failure in the eye
there are no limits that I can see, that are capable of grounding my flight
