As age creeps ever nearer life's end I look upon death as a godsend. There's few left I can still call a friend my heart's broken unable to bend, shadows in the dark must learn to blend. The world is under a lot of strain as nations vow to be great again. Irrespective of the widespread pain, sane people are acting inhumane. Gobble warming is not far away it is real, and it is here to stay no matter what politicians say. There are too many people on earth we're increasing in both life and birth. Facing the future, I don’t fear death. I fear bully tactics will extend giving hate and bigotry free rein. And I'm glad I won't be here the day we're judged not for our valve but our worth and people will fight for every breath. (Minuanetta) 02/05/2020
