For Reena’s Exploration Challenge, i used this verse as inspiration “I’m sick and tired of being called ‘mortal’ like, you don’t know that. Neither do I. I have never died even ONCE. Nothing has been proven yet. Stop making assumptions. It’s rude.”
i am a lonesome mortal on earth yet to experience death.
if death comes to visit me i am ready for i have lived my life to the fullest.
i have made the most notable most memorable trail on earth.
yes, i did even if life was full of unwarranted tribulations.
i fought the hardest fights with grace and composure.
i stood by my ground, never gave up, and was always ready to be brave in yet another battle anytime.
even if people around made it so hard i face them with a smile, with gratitude, with love.
i face them with the hope that they remember me for all of the good reasons and not for my failures.
not even for my occasional pride and arrogance or my shortcomings.
and i say forgive me my fellow mortals for all the times i hurt you and all the times i wasn’t my best self.
yes, i am ready for death anytime or so i thought
until today death arrived.
shocking and chilling unexpectedly, i thought he’d come at least in a form i’m so familiar with.
grave illness, cardiac arrest, or maybe a nightmare.
death comes when you walk away.
just when i needed you the most.
and i just died.
