Here I sit before a comp
A disturbing pain in my chest;
A cause to worry, very much.
I recall the last epitaph’
Written only days ago
Is this the parallel to it?
I roam with my mind through the worst
Finding no solace anywhere
I picture in my soul
A beamer* taking me to hospital’
On the hossie* steps, I need to talk
At least for the last time
(All the money accrued in my short stint at work to credit.
I have to make a call).
To my sister, brothers and the lone survivor
With whom I fought for and alongside
When friendly fire became enemy’s
This I shall remember.
I withdraw, having relayed the message;
‘Bye I’m gonna die’
My soul dreads now,
This wish that has always been my dream.
I remember my enemies then ask for forgiveness.
I picture their souls proclaiming in unison; weak!
Then in a arrogant persistence
They lead an onslaught against me.
I with my soul’s higher affinity for God,
Laugh these mere ignorant humans off.
God is on my side, they don’t understand humility.
