Death is on my mind.

Death is on my mind a lot these days…
When I wake up and don’t want to leave my bed,
When I start looking back on events of the past.
There are times it’s hard to stand up,
but eventually, by the time I realize,
I’m already brushing my teeth and getting dressed.

The start of a new day,
one I didn’t want to experience,
going to a job I hate,
returning to my home
in a neighborhood I hate
in a city I hate
in a country I hate.

Death is on my mind a lot these days…
When I wake up and can’t leave my bed,
When my bones don’t move
as hard as I try
as hard as I force them

Death remains in my mind as I fall back asleep
before the day even begins.
