Let my last minutes not be passed on menial tasks
Rather let me die having fun, my daily chores left undone
Let me die not with pockets stuffed
Let my last coins not go to waste, prisoners to a safe
Rather let me die poor, rich with times i enjoyed more
Let me die not with glass full
Let my last sips not be wasted, left untasted
Rather let me die feeling fine, high, happy with wine
Let me die not my beasts defeated
Let my last breaths not be spent after my demons’ deaths
Rather let me die a rebel, defiant before the gates of hell
This is the third and final installment of my One Life Trilogy.
The first piece is “Tales the Dead Tell“.
The second is “Imprisoner“.
