A Life Not Lived

I am not remembered in any form or way
Undeserving of their love and respect.
I understand, and yet I grieve.
For myself.

For what I lost
Ignoring the ones who could have
Showered me with love
But did not 
Because they knew me not.

I reserve my place in the cosmos
Of ignorance 
Recognizing truth and love
once again upon the throne of death
as I enter a kingdom I do not deserve

The angels grabbed me and gave me
what I had sought on earth in the form
of lust,  not even my biggest mistake.
My soul cries now
At a life not lived.

Thank you Charles. They say when death is at your door you never regret the things you tried and failed at; all of your regrets are about the things you did not try that you wanted to try.

"I am not remembered in any form or way" This thought touches my heart so deeply. It's very sad indeed, for those that will never have the opportunity- to Live. Congratulations Caren, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brady
