As my heart grows heavy
and my tired eyes burn,
I watch the Fates dancing
around the dimming bulb.
Spinner of life, you brought me
kicking and screaming
into a world of beauty,
hidden behind a veil of evil.
Allotter, I cannot bear a grudge
for the life you have given me.
It has been a good life.
My suffering only helped me learn,
made me strong, showed me
to appreciate the times of light.
Unturning Fate, the time draws near
for you to cut the threads of life
away from my throat, as I gasp for air.
You move around the light,
the Moirai, that Zeus himself
could not control.
Many have cursed your arrival.
To me, you’ve only brought peace.
