Margot, Age 12, Easton, CT

I forever live
When the heart stops beating
The breath stops blowing
The blood stops rushing

I shall not perish
When anger, joy, and melancholy die
The heart stops blooming
The voice vanishes

I perpetually endure
As the mind stops thinking
The creativity no longer thrives
The craftsmanship composes no more

I will never die
As the hands feel nothing again
The sweetness no longer melts on the tongue
The eyes no longer seek out their promised land

I eternally survive
As the mother drifts away
The father swiftly burns out
The universe flows from reach

I forever live.
