The Last Chapter…

Life is a mystery novel, chapter after

Chapter, words painting every scene;

Leaving the mind filled with anticipation.


Each day viewed with the trusting mind

Of a child, innocence shades the memory,

Memories hide in the mind.


Can time change one’s past…No, and the

Future is unknown.  Life is a sailing ship

Upon the waves of what is soon to be



Where dreams may be lost upon turbulent

Seas, disparagement rains unkindly upon the

Unaware.  The guilty accepts no fault or

Responsibilities for a life that they may have

Brought fear and tears.


They do not have remorse, nor do they care.

Chapter after chapter, existence torn and

Ripped apart; the guilty never feel shame, nor

Show that they have a heart.


When one reaches the last chapter and the

End draws near, one’s mind returns to a

Childlike place, a place without tears and

Peace replaces the old fears.


No need to grieve that no one cared, no need

To be sad or try to bring back the good times in

Your yesterdays; the grieving will soon end and

One will no longer yearn for the love never there.


Now one’s heart beats alone and yet sometimes

Briefly filled with grief for those hearts that were

Long ago stilled.


Did sacrifice of the one-heart change how the

Guilty chose to live when the space they occupied

Is empty and the one-heart moved on; do the spirits

Of the guilty wander forever questioning where they

Went wrong.


With the last page read and the book closed

Shut, the one-heart watch page-by- page, chapter-

By-chapter many lives unfold; and the one-heart is

Left to wonder if re-written would a new story be

  1. I hope it is okay to post a comment here,It has nothing to do with what is written above . I really didn’t take the time to read it I was looking for any space to write a comment.. I had no sooner published my last post, I would say 1 minute, 2minutes at the most and the notification light went on. A comment on that post! I just had to come bye and thank you for the like . Forgive my backward ways the is no provision to comment on Likes. So I made my own way.


  2. On my way out I figured while I was here I would read your write “the last chapter” . Ann it is very good. If the rest of the book compares. It’s a plate full and another plate in leftovers.
