End Is Nigh, The - Poem by Alison Smith

Music flows through my mind
Energy flows through my body
Ideas appear in my mind
How will I act on these?

Today I felt myself leaving this world
Soon I must choose
A choice as to how long I will be here
And what path my life will lead

Is it unfair for me to take from others
To leach their experience and calm
So that I may be without pain
I think that I am doing this now.

When I was young I made a decree
That my time would be over at twenty one
I wish I had done that now
But I felt I had more to do

I ask again, what else do I want to do?
Are there any new experiences I wish to have?
Can I achieve anything else?

I feel only the peace of death is left
Thanks to everyone who has been there for me
Thanks for the experience of life
I will leave this place nowwwwwww
