3 Quotes, 3 Days : Day 2- TorontoStrong

Today, the news from Toronto haunts me. I am burdened with a mountain of sadness, so forgive my morbid words.

If we each live properly, we will collectively flourish

-Jordan Peterson

**

There is a knot in my heart

If we live properly… only if… if… IF

 

But he didn’t

And he stifled them from flourishing

 

They will lie in the ground

Bones will turn to dust

 

He stole their days

Thief!

 

One Monday, their week started

A week that will never finish

 

Lives un-finished

IF we live properly

 

IF…

 

They collectively died

On the pavement of their home

 

I will be sad

And they will be dead

 

I will be okay

And they will be dead

 

I will forget

And still they will be dead

 

Death bestowed on them irretrievably

Lives rendered incomplete

 

If we raise proper children

We won’t collectively die un-finished
