The World Is A Better Place

By John SwanPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

Sometimes you just know...

The world...

It's grown dark and cold.

The sun doesn't shine as bright...

And it no longer provides warmth...

Clouds gather round

And giant drops of rain are all that fall

The trees have shed their leaves

Leaving bare trunks full of disease

The blankets at night

They do nothing...

It's still cold...

And you know you're all alone...

The happiness of others

Fades everytime I'm around...

So I drop back into the shadows..

Hiding from sight...

Each day the truth becomes clearer...

The world will be a better place...

When I'm no longer around.
