EXISTENCE

This mound of earth
No longer an island home for thousands,
Surrounded by the sea

The sea that gently, but insistently
Lashes against it sides
Eating away at it until it is no more

And no one remembers
If it ever existed here

And I,
Just like the mound of earth
My body tugged at
By death
Gently, but insistently,
Firmly,
Until I am no more

And no one remembers,
If I ever existed here.
