Alongside Each Other

A poem

Alongside Each Other

If you live long enough you start collecting ashes.

The length of life is but the width of lashes.

Living alongside those who'll leave,

For a fate you'll never deceive.

Marches fall silent along your way,

Giving unread words the last say.

Dreary, flat skies of white,

Hang over souls waiting for flight.

We're waiting; waiting for word, waiting for more.

A dull infectious death; grotesqueless gore.

Getting up in the morning is a stolen choice.

To hope is cruel to those who lost their voice.

This is all we have; this moment, this now.

To live our answers to the why and the how.
