The Street Empty, The Sun Set - Poem by ChiehTing Yeh

The street empty, the sun set
The shadow consumes my habitat
I sat in my rocking chair and lit a cigarette
Rocking back and forth to the sound of old cassettes
Sitting, thinking about life and death
Not understanding a whole lot about why they were sad
Life is a set-up everyone’s bound to die
Yet millions mourn and millions cried
Why try to escape or change the past
When it is now that is important and not the rest
Realize we should accept the decisions made
Today, it would be my last, Alas.
