Hanging On

Diverting his eyes from that last final hour,

denying death its due


His conscience and awareness tight in his grip,

ownership unrenewed


Both arms around life, he’s forever rejected,

blinded as time starts to bleed


Meeting the end in a loss of control

—damned by what he won’t concede


(Villanova Pennsylvania: October, 2020)
