Before I rage impotently against the dying light.
Before I scream incoherently as my gaolers drag me away.
Before my vision narrows inexorably to nothingness.
Before the last vestiges of acuity, clarity, and dignity disappear.
Before I kneel to the inevitable.
And shamble off into nothingness.
Before my time comes.
Let me see this world again.
