A person wakes up and makes a choice,
to end a life, and his.
A life laid out on a page.
He quotes C.S. Lewis,Chesterton and the Bible.
But, he awoke this morning and dressed.
Placed the guitar on his bed,and replaced it with an AK-47.
Still time to change his mind as he weaves through the midday traffic.
Driving down the tree filled drive,
beneath the new, green leaves-does he notice the beauty surrounding him?
Taking the guitar case from the trunk,
he walks with purpose towards his destiny-to shatter a life, and end his own.
