I made a grave mistake.
I let a part of me die.
I was supposed to die on that day
Yet somehow I was saved.
I was taken in,
Given new hope.
For a while I still wanted to die
I felt filthy,
I felt wrong.
Yet I had to take on a part of someone else
She had died that fateful day.
The day when I was supposed to.
She shouldn't have,
It should have been me
She unknowingly saved my life.
I had to take care of what she left behind
She gave me a hope for the future
She gave me her life.
I now had a reason to go on.
I actualy had two.
