IS


Is
this the road,
I'm condemned to walk?
To die
in a such a way
to cause my loved ones
pain?

Is
there no way
to change the cost
fate will demand
for the acts enemies committed?

Is
the tears,
my beloved friends shed
to be purchased
by the crimson
life, running in my
constricting veins?

Is
this some kind
of sick cosmic joke?

If
it is
I'm not enjoying
the punch line.

Is
there no easy way
to say,
goodbye?
