This Was It...

As he fell he waited.

He waited for the end.

He waited for the sudden stop.

He watched in slow motion as everything fell away.

He tried to reach for something to stop it.

But everything was just out of his grasp.

Helpless to save himself,

He couldn’t cry out for help.

His mouth stuck tight.

No one could help him now anyway.

This was it.

He felt the end approaching.

His family had been right.

He wasn’t going to die saving orphans as he’d planned.

He was going to die tripping over his dog,

And choking on a peanut butter sandwich.
