when your productive life is done
and the decline becomes steeper
with each passing second
you'd be more inclined to accept
your time has passed and you're ready
to move on to whatever it is we move on
the only problem is even though we are finished
God is never finished with us...
it takes more strength to endure a long slow death
than it is to live life at full vigor
because our punishment is to live in this hell we call the world
and I for one am useless now...and would be lucky to find
a way to keep alive until this 'god' is done with me....
