Re-establishing my roots

Buried

Under a ton of mud

As heavy as

The burden I carried

I was unhappy

Unfulfilled

What I wanted

Never arrived

Never stilled my nerves

I died

Noone cried

I guess I

Shouldn't be upset

My weight was lifted

It freed my regrets

It's okay now

I'm out of everyone's hair

Even though

They lacked knowing

I was there

Perished

Gone from life

Reading about me

In the obituaries

You gave

A eulogy

Unnecessary

You should know

This was best for me

I was brave

Up until my grave
