Departure to Death

You are beautiful,

and don’t you know

that if you leave,

nothing waits for you on the outside,

but death.

Perhaps it will be years,

or days, or hours, or minutes.

So much talent, beauty, and intellect,

all wasted on slavery.

Will you return to us,

or will you be found,

blue lipped, and grey of face,

never to return

to those who would have helped you learn

to live your life with joy.
