Point of View: Ben Thomas (Tim)

I close my eyes and I see a flashback,
I wish I could undo, take it all back.
I don’t know what has taken over me,
There’s only pain and sorrow that my eyes could see.
But I do see something else too,
Souls in agony but there’s only good that they do.
I wonder how much could they bear,
standing on thin ice and coals on the fire
and still not budging from doing what is fair.
I vividly remember that jellyfish,
Then I knew,
Something as beautiful can also give a deadly kiss.
Past few days have taught me something,
No one is powerful than self
yet only a powerless being.
Maybe I have finally deciphered the code,
Helping others is helping thee.
Not a day goes by when I don’t wish it was me,
Not a day goes when I don’t wish those eyes could again; see.
How funny life is,
If only each day had I seized.
Here I leave my reigns,
And accept all the pain,
As I let the thing I love the most,
Kill me.
As I leave parts of my soul,
Behind me.
And as I lay down my arms,
There’s only one thing I wish,
The lives that I gave,
Live theirs differently than how I did.
