Title: Vion Sandor, Old Woman
Post by: Frederique on 16 May, 2010, 09:58:50

Old woman

Old woman
Bent and frail,
Dares to clutch the coffin’s nail,
Fights to stop the hammer’s blow.

“No, no I don’t want…”
To go she must,
To go to dust,
Her crime is life.

Old woman bent and frail,
Dares to clutch the coffin’s nail,
Begs and pleads to no avail,
Bloody from the hammer’s blow.

“No, no, I will not…”
To go she must,
To go to dust,
The doctor says it’s so.

Old woman, bent and frail,
Dares to clutch the coffin’s nail,
Now together, yes we fight,
For life itself and what is right,
In defiance of that hammer’s blow!


-Vion
