Final Words

The dyin’ man

in the dyin’ land

said with his dyin’ breath,

“Life is not a fantasy,

it’s always been a test.

“I’ve done some harm,

caused some alarm,

and failed more than one person.

“I had some dreams,

and made some schemes,

but never found my purpose.

“But now I lay me down to sleep, 

I’m about to close my eyes,

say what you will ’bout me,

I don’t care, I died.”

    1. Thanks, Kenneth. I wrote the first on a whim as I wandered the street and readied myself to write, just a stretching exercise. I’ve often wondered if I would say anything on my death bed, but as I don’t speak often now, I doubt that I would. Cheers
