On The Ledge
Katherine Smith

  Stand upon the edge of that ledge
            Are you afraid to leap?
               What is now and existent was never truly you
            Your mask torn, every fiber of its' being, now lay in ruin
                "May you spend your remaining hours on this Earth alone"
            Their words reiterate rapidly in your mind
Your knees become weak, as you draw in a breath for the very last time
              

    Memories surround you
        As the Cityís lights blind you
     Airy the night, the cold wind chills you
  There is no turning back, now.
        No falling to your knees,
No begging Please,
        Will no one claim your sinning soul?

No hands will be raised
        No more praise
For the deeds of this life have come to pass
         No more tears
Release your fears
        Here comes your final Plunge
Try to imagine
       A Motherís expression
A Fatherís scream in the midst of the night
       
    They will suffer
Your pain is merely momentary
    For theirís will last for all eternity.
Your feet begin to shuffle,
    Finally you leap

The darkness surrounds you
     Your eyes remained closed
Numbed by the cold is your bones
     Your father awakes
You were never forgotten
    Just a product of Societyís ignorance
A follower.
