Dearly To Soon

Tyler Golec

Taiwan
A train stop on the east coast of Taiwan…

Dearly Too Soon

To those,

Dearly too soon departed

Those minds never to be

Voices never heard

I was almost you.

 

Too young and stupid

And for a moment luck ran out

Because luck isn’t real

It’s all timing.

 

Sometimes the timing is wrong

Sometimes the chance is we die.

Immortality is a god’s game

And even gods die.

 

I lay on that street, crushed

And bones fragile.

 

I had the courtesy to not die

Friends watching, crying

I did not die,

I am not one of those

Dearly too soon departed.
