Legacy -/- Grief

Legacy

When accounting for lives
Endings outrank beginnings

Generosity before we die
Justifies our lives

Like leopards leaving skins
Human reputations remain

Leading unbeleivable, fooltastic lives
Curses earthly legacy

***

Glorious lives eternally celebrated
Anonymites memorially destitute

Decades of profound benevelonce
Deify our lives

Exalt upon unique greatness
Imperishable, posthamous praise


13:14
Grief

Feotus, teenager, popstar, grandfather:
Death reckons equally

Tho’ death offers relief
Survivors suffer pains

Against dying’s regent power
Ceaseless weeping useless

Circumventing widening, melancholic dejections
Acknowledges circumambient sorrows

***

As torrents flood villages
Grief engulfs families

As corpses slowly rot
Grief diminishes daily

We lament not yet
Humanity’s last waltz
