{September 27, 2012}   *~Changed~*

I have looked
closely at death.
Turned it over
in my hands,
embraced it,
hated it,
held onto it,
pushed it away.
I’ve looked forward
to it, run
toward it, cried
over it, fled
from it. I’ve
seen first-hand
how it changes
things, it changes
people, it has
changed me. I’ve
pondered the choices,
all the different
ways, modes and
methods. I’ve dreamed
about it, fantasized
about it, hoped
for it. In
the end, decided
it wasn’t worth
it.

I look closely
at death, these
poor souls who
were left no
choice. I’ve turned
them over in
my hands, embraced
them, hated it
for them, held
onto them and
even pushed them
away, as if
death were a
disease. I’ve seen
first-hand how
it changes things,
it changes people,
it has changed
me.
