If Death was a Photograph

*Hanging there in the luscious greenery of the tree,
cold as ice, turned to stone, lifeless as can be
Panic rises as a father tries to save his son,
cuts him down from the tree of death
What has he become?
Breathing stopped
Silence now,
as the family mourns his death
Paramedics at the scene
He’s taken his last breath
Nothing can be done to save this brother’s heart
Tied a rope around his neck,
as life fell apart
The family says goodbye to a son and brother
Wars will be waged as the family stays together
The funeral a week from now,
look at all the faces
More than just a son and brother,
a friend in many places
Look at the casket now,
Beauty lies inside
Flowers all around,
casket closed,
I wonder why he died
If I could only see his face,
I would know the truth
I know nothing of his death,
except he put it all on you
A struggling soul,
now is free,
to walk the earth at night
The Beauty of Death comes alive
only when the time is right

A brother’s dedication to my family
Who lost the one who blamed us all and now is gone
I don’t care about the flaws, I will just move on*
