As I lay on Deaths Pillow

Moving along through this life I've been handed Not one of my choice, one that on top of me landed Making the best of it trying to be strong Keeping my humanity while trudging along Keeping my chin up, taking pride in whatever I do. Aware of my enemies, keeping friends down to just a few Remembering my lessons and what I was taught REmembering to cling to what can't be bought. Watching others judge while they are judged by another Why is it so hard to accept the differences in each other If we did then this world may be able to one day start To build each other up instead of tearing humanity apart. As for me And where I am destined to go I will continue on letting the good in me show.. Then in this life for the very last time When my purpose is served I can write my last rhyme When it is my turn to rest on deaths pillow peacefully I shall lay No matter the mistakes I made along the way
