The Place I'm In

You cannot kill me here. Bring your soldiers, your death, your disease, your collapsed economy because it doesn’t matter, I have nothing left to lose and you cannot kill me here. Bring the tears of orphans and the wails of a mother’s loss, bring your God damn air force and Jesus on a cross, bring your hate and bitterness and long working hours, bring your empty wallets and love long since gone but you cannot kill me here. Bring your sneers, your snide remarks and friendships never felt, your letters never sent, your kisses never kissed, cigarettes smoked to the bone and cancer killing fears but you cannot kill me here. For I may fall and I may fail but I will stand again each time and you will find no satisfaction. Because you cannot kill me here.

In the wasteland of my decaying and corrupted mind the thought of destroying the only colour that contrasts an otherwise grey dream causes me bleed and scream inside because you do not know me.

Thank you.
Here is where I am now.
Here I was if I cared to look.
And here I will be in future.
No one kills future except for oneself.
