Green and happy was the forest
And you died in it quietly
Just like it was supposed to be.
All your wants you wore on your sleeve,
While your true human needs were tucked away in the black bag
In the farthest corner of your mind
You were too afraid to look at.
You lived so loud you couldn’t hear your inner pulse
And when it slowed down
You didn’t know it,
Because all you cared for was the gimmie-gimmies
That came and left, and new ones always arrived.
You made no friends,
Just enemies and acquaintances
And no one came for help when you screamed.
All your care was for how nice you looked
And how cool was your new cell phone.
Your desires were shallow.
All the need you had was for your wishes
To come true right away,
And if they didn’t, your inexistent patience
Ate at you like a wolf at a throat.
Beating heart of life that went on its terms
Scared the hell out of you.
Timeless breath of the planet made you twitch in worry
And when you waited for the sun to come up
And warm your limbs on that camping trip
(which is a surprise you went for one in the first place)
Cold kept biting on your skin,
As worms and ants minded their business,
As the birds were gathering and foxes hunting,
And you wondered “why the fuck is the sun taking so long to come up?!?”
And it came, but you didn’t know it
Because you finally fell asleep for the first time in your life
And the slumber was too beautiful to be alive for
So death was the best thing that ever happened to you
As you became nothing,
As you were.
