To Believe in More


My life was plentiful; 

a riveting existence, 

an evocative memory, 

all imprinted on a reel of film 

Story continues below advertisement


Frame by frame, 

they all flashed before me. 

A compilation of the zealous moments 

that encapsulated my existence 


Now, I decided my eternal fate. 

The rift expanded. 

As I feel my soul withdraw from my body,  


Each thought that created me 

and each moment that defined me, 

dissipated gracefully into thin air. 


I saw my cold, lifeless body lie there, 

and watched my entire life once more. 


As I said my serene goodbye, 

I immersed my body and my soul into the unknown, 

Already forgetting who I once was.
