A Poem to the End

A Poem to the End

A Poem by TwoDaysTooLate

We all have our happy endings...

Two steps, two steps,
That's all it took,
To reach the edge,
One last look.

I close my eyes,
Brace for the fall,
I remember their faces,
'Useless', they call.

One foot, one foot,
Over the brink,
I can't think about drowning,
About how I'll sink.

I balance calmly,
Rethinking my choice,
But suddenly behind me,
I hear a voice.

The other foot, the other foot,
Prepares to go,
But then I see all the things,
Things I'll never know.

I'm rocking now,
Ever closer to death,
I steel myself and,
Take my last breath.

A hand, a hand,
On my shoulder,
Under the touch,
I feel myself getting older.

I throw myself off the cliff,
Sailing through the air,
Remember kids, 
Life isn't fair.
