life is fragile;

 

shatter me.

 

offer my insides up for kids science lessons;

 

maybe then someone will learn from me.

 

offer the lenses of my eyes to the blind;

 

maybe then someone will benefit from me.

 

offer my organs to the sick;

 

maybe then someone will gain life from death.

 

while i am existing, so many before me have breathed their last.

 

is it wrong to be resentful of them just because i want to be with them?

 

my light is fading

 

all too quickly.

 

so hurry, 

 

hand me over to ethereal darkness,

 

maybe i will leave a light behind.
