the wish

came to the
that this life that s/he has
lived, is all but being
burnt out on what seems
now &
the wish that there was an
early out, a donor card possibly
for those who feel that they
haven’t a thing left to add,
so that the living organs could
be used help out others that 
are already sick, whose hand
dealt, was worse off from the
but the wish is useless
(um, no one, nothing,
grants wishes)
in fact, what eats at the wisher
more than anything is that such 
an act would self-martyr them,
making more out of something
that is simply a response to
errors &
who’s to say that such a wish
might be carried out after 
the wisher died?
