One Choice Remains

Often life more cruel than death, pandemics to defy Each breath of pain a new refrain, whose fate we must comply We live each choice right to the end, all consequence dethroned Until the reaper grants reprieve, no mercy to be shown This giant chorus sings aloud, discordant and alone The fear we face subservient to the dread of the unknown Those tracks we leave with blood to mark, the distant by and by One choice remains to end the game —a final last goodbye (Dreamsleep: December, 2021)
