The Question

I gazed into the darkest abyss and was amazed to see
A familiar looking face gazing back at me

In a familiar voice he cried out as if in pain
“Release me from these dreaded chains”

I looked closer for a glimpse of recognition
Who was this poor soul begging for redemption

A bolt of electricity coursed through my spine
As I realized this tormented soul was mine

“Break these chains and set me free”
“Let me join my father who passed before me”

I heard his cries but could do nothing to assist
I felt his pain but had to reluctantly resist

As I turned to walk away from him
I knew this day would come again

Would I be as strong as I was this day
Or would I break these earthly chains and simply fade away

The answer to the question is not mine to give
The question to the answer is to die or live
