The Sum of a Life Unlived

Taken from this hideous world.
Saved from the horrors unfolding,
Unrelenting, not yet unfurled,
But, potential unrealized.
Gone begging to those wagging tongues,
Quick to mourn, quicker to falsehoods.

A life hardly experienced.
Sampled, as if simply trialled,
A shred of inconvenience,
Averted, by dying too young,
Saved, for the revelers who weep,
Fondly, teary-eyed, in no mood.

Passing of time, ceremony.
Showing love that was hidden still,
Shamed, waiting in ignominy,
Saved by untimely passing,
Released, from the world of the dead.
Returned, soon to be forgotten.

Copious tears, and howling,
The show, for the moment, sadness.
Glancing at time wasted, scowling.
At the fate that awaits us all,
Imaginations gone awry,
Save for their most formal goodbyes.

The luck of the chosen fewer,
Escaping such indecency.
Going from once alive, now were,
Leaving behind dramatics,
And the petty shows of concern,
Eternally. Repeatedly...
