Would it be?

Would it be?

A Poem by GwenLark
"

Thoughts of a future

"

What if my body just gave in?

Would it be such a surprise?

Such a shock?


Would imposters costumed as friends

Mourn?

Would characters shrouded in black

Tell heavily amended versions of

My truth?


When would that be?


Would it be after many ‘happy’ years of ‘belonging’

With glazed over eyes?

Would it be after travelling a world full of despair and

Cruelty?

Would it be after producing an heir

To this kingdom of

Imagined joy?


Would it be alone?


Would it be after a lifetime of struggle,

A lifetime of pain

A lifetime of heartache and disappointment?


Would it be tomorrow?


Before the golden light of a cold and

Unforgiving sun peered over the distant

Tree tops?

Before I even opened my eyes?


I pray it is.
