Cemetery

Stones are carved 
Shaped into endless hills upon hills
The narrow pathways divide and
Wind like veins
Emptied of blood 

There are no trees
No life that springs from happy soils
Except memories clung desperately to loved ones
Else they are forgotten

Who are we but our memories?
Without them we are a nameless grave

We will all end here.

    Sad but true. Most of us will fade into obscurity when our families have also gone.
