Section 19, Row 38: My End in Sight
For a moment, I felt peace
at an odd place. Surrounded by gravestones of pilgrims
Who have passed on, and comforted by
the wind’s gentle touch, there I was
at my grandfather’s resting place—
A reminder, a truth I so often forget:
All things come to an end.
Until then, I must run this race
Like an athlete who fights for their wreath.
