preventative confidence

part of a person’s brain
really doesn’t know what to do when
ended time here in this existence happens to a
very special person in this world
except that is not the kind of stress that helps and
nobody can deal with this surprising death
taken from this life too soon
attempting to keep composure about it
there is a great emotional seeking
in the air around the memorial and
vital good friends are in a sorrowful standstill
exceptional statements freeze before
coming out of the mouths
of those who really had one more thing they
needed to say previous to passing on
for all of us the regrets are common
inside our bodies a clock is ticking
deciding for us how long we have
experts cannot tell what will be your final moment
nobody has an exact grasp on the future
can you give kindness every day and keep in mind
everyone has been scraping through private struggles
