A dark poem about a man driven to the edge by those around him who would not relent.

-Deserving As Much-
Keaton Foster

*Vignette5* *Vignette5* *Vignette5* *Vignette5* *Vignette5*

Truth, love, and hope
Redefined as a rope
Around his neck
Suffocating with intent
The distance is short
The fall will be great
Please understand
Is written across his chest
Each letter burnt into place
Each consonant overstated
It is meant for no one to read
And for everyone to understand
That he, a man of so many intricacies
Could be driven to such a ledge
They should have heard him
His whimpers for help sounded like roars
If they knew, they are doomed
If they didn't, insignificant
Ignorance cannot be claimed
They all did indeed persist
They would not give him
A seconds worth of breath
Befitting is his method of death
They will comprehend
Because the weight of such
A decision equally spreads out
Gravity applies to any
And all situations
They will be haunted
By the idea of all that they did
It will be like a draft on their neck
That often comes right before
Something terrible jumps up and screams
Surprise, you mortal son of a bitch
He will suffer less because
His neck will be snapped from base to end
It is a brutally predictable method of the end
Because the body cannot support the weight
Of such an all-encompassing decision
Will he be in heavens wake
Or will he be in hells lake
Such a predicament matters less
He is only concerned with the point
The end to all meaning
The setting free of a life at the
Price of everything that comes next
He will pay it with interest
Any itemized deduction will benefit
Those who remain to clean up the mess
And place him within earths embrace
He will get the only break
A break that he is sure he deserves…
