Underlying the fear within was the deep irony of it all,
To carry the loss be the deed done today.
For years to come shall it reside in me
Thoughts so deep one could drown.
In the breathlessness of the moment,
Emerging from nowhere,
Surrounded by the graves unburied,
Conviction needed to accept it.
To bear the loss alone I am willing
For it is mine own to bear.
After the decades of rotting,the belief shattered,
The legacy left behind.
Lost in time.
