Death Sentence


Please help me

I am in this facility

confined to this room

they have blocked my family out

I cannot see them

they say it is a virus

they say it is the law

they say no one can see me

I don't know what to do

I am an old woman

I am in a wheelchair

feeble and dying

I am all by myself

separated and apart

put in this small dark room

I cannot look outside

the window is blacked out

there will be no light

no visitors

no family

no love

in my last days

I want to see my family

to see their faces

to hear their voices

to hold their hands

just one more time

before I leave this earth

I am going to die

alone all alone

with only tears

for company.

d. The world over, there is a dark cloud that shrouds the misery and destitution so many are experiencing.

The winds of change will surely dissipate this translucent darkness and a new brighter fairer day will dawn.

Until then we can but send out our own light to those that assuredly need illumination and comfort.

I trust you and those you hold dear are well.
