Ezy Reading: Soon Forgotten

Evan Kanarakis

From the very beginning
He should have known
Must have known

That trouble, there would be

It was in the air

For weeks grim signposts
Warnings left and right
Had marked the way

Still he journeyed onward, not oblivious

But bowing to pride's request

Though this would be too heavy
For anyone to bear
He lacked the strength

His greatest foe, it lay within

And environment and influence did corrupt

So soon he sank
Led astray
By diversions and distractions

As time conspired

As time soon required

The end, the end of it all.

Ezy Reading is out every Monday.
