Mourning.

Still life of dry flowers in a glass vase - stock photo

Mourning is not always resigned for the dead
And, so I shall mourn you
The potential you waste
The intelligence you hide
Given over to hedonistic delights
No substance, no depth
You only value outward attractiveness
Ignoring true and lasting beauty
Reaching out to take hold of the body
As you ignore the soul
So, I shall mourn the living you
The selfish ,pleasure-seeking, shallow one
Who will in the end remain alone
When all beauty and youth are gone
