New Reality

I am tired,
A life has expired
A person who I deeply admired.
The future that was selected
Came when I least expected.
I don't know what tonight will be,
Little did I know that she would be free.

The sound of a rattling diesel engine
did catch my attention - I knew that machine wasn't beeping.

The wind is still, but the air hot,
No flower moves, no dust blows,
Footprints grow as the tears flow.
All here today will be here again.
A hole in the ground, so deep and wide,
I wonder what it's like to be deep inside.
