Casket

In the dark I sit
I don’t seem to exist.
This world
Is my coffin 
I’m buried alive,
Forced to see
The pain of mankind
Everyday is more intense 
Than the last,
It’s getting harder 
To breathe in the cask.
Loosing strength
Can’t go on
Much longer 
As I lay here
unconsciousness takes over.

    Well.. this is very deep, yes indeed the pain of mankind is all about us, but if we were to dwell on it, we are just adding our pain to it, as for the world beyond mankind that is far from a casket, it is a beautiful paradise which can soothe our pain, love Elizabeth
