Selfish4am

Just like that-
you were done
fed up with this life
no room for anything else

You must have been depressed
I heard so many people say
to take a gun, end it all
with no chance for turning back

you were so many things:
disturbed
selfish
pathetic
over and over, oh I heard them all

I remember you as I saw you-
unselfish
freely giving
doing without
just so those you cared about
could go further

maybe you were bullied
maybe you liked to drink
or do drugs
I don’t know

People who knew nothing about
you, made judgments
so many judgments
what right did they have?

Just like that
you left
there’s a hold that never fills up
time didn’t make it easier either

    Unquote

    A poignant take on life’s inexplicable exposures that confound and confuse…one is left wondering what happened?

    This is universal.
