Life Eclipsed

To be or Not to be

By Kyle CejkaPublished 28 days ago 1 min read

Eternity begins in prison, the iron gates crashing behind me

Crashing like the jaw of a hungry beast

Like the jaws of the hungry beasts that surround me

I know these animals hunger for my flesh, my blood, my life

Perhaps I will survive, if I become like them

Survival requires choices we'd rather not make

Eventually, even the weak can become fierce
