Set Free - Poem by Fernando Alvarez

My World is spinning
not sure which way to turn
not sure what to do
the gun lays there
so still and quiet
sitting here thinking
how life has done me wrong
wondering why
I hate life so much
will I pull that trigger
I too will leave this world
leave this world of hate
there is nothing left here for me

slowly
I pick the gun up
I feel my hand shaking
I hear my heart beating
I point the gun
towards my chest
for people will now know
a true broken heart
when you were taken from me
my world was flip turned upside down
I think everyday
there had to have been something I could say
replaying our last conversation
over and over in my mind

have I committed a crime
could I have done something
these are questions that will go unanswered
your life has ended
now it's my turn

with a knock at the door
so many things running through my mind
my fingers shaking
as the door opens
the trigger is pulled
laying on the floor
with your eyes above me
I see the wings
now my heart
truly has been
'Set Free'
