When Will He Learn?



When Will He Learn?

Dead eyes. Dead skin. All gone and yet breathing the same air.
I taste the stench on my tongue. You know how Death smells sweet?
Noxious.
I’ve grown accustomed to its presence.
I don’t want to live without it, it seems.
Cannot live without it.
It eats my food.
It plays with my kids.
It gives itself a new name, tells me it loves Me, promises me everything
On a daily basis,
Then it takes it all away again.
And again and again.
It teaches me all about real sorrow that way.
Birth.
Death.
Resurrection.
Despair.
But do I need this lesson again?
Here we go . . .
