It takes a Toll on Them

Updated: Jul 16

It takes a Toll on them


Those who cannot handle

Nor embrace

Nor Love


Life

Or that

What is real


So quickly their bodies rot


But before that and for that

Their soul must die

And it almost always does

So many millions of corpses

I have already seen

Even when the flesh is barely

Fourteen, fifteen


And many who can handle it

A bit longer

Don’t


And by the physical age of 22

Almost all are dead


Year to year as I see

Their matter age

So rapidly


It amazes me


Each time


How long a body can survive

Barely alive
