Remember

It’s strange when a person you know dies

and you walk through a street,

or talk to a friend,

or browse the internet

and everyone is just living their lives

and you know that they have nothing,

nothing to do with who has passed away

but you can’t help but yell inside your head

at the world to stop turning round,

for one dam second

and just take a minute

to remember the dead.

But then you realise

that if it did that

the world would be still,

forever.

We keep living

the world keeps turning

so the efforts they made to make a better one

wouldn’t be in vain.

They wouldn’t want it to stop for them

you wouldn’t want it to stop for you.

Remember

the dead

by being

alive.
