When I cease

Tears raining
From the spring in my eyes.

Unspoken words 
Choking my throat.

Infinitesimally giant
Splitting the guts in my brain...

The earth is not mine
But so it seems...

The leaves won't
Be forever green
The fauna won't
Forever shed skin.

Cos for sure
An end comes to all...


... Charity
... Goodness
... Happiness
... Wealth
... Victory...
All shall cease...

But me...
Will I cease to exist?

In people's minds
In their lives
In my deeds
In my records
Pure and untainted...
... Yes...

On the earth
In reality
On the field...
...No... I cease...

So why not I make
The Yes worth its while?
Why not build
My record stainlessly?

Since I shall cease
As shall do the earth
Just as chalk
On a classroom board...
