Final Thoughts

Shebvon Askew


(Even though this piece was written four years ago, the sentiments remain.)


I fell asleep at 8 pm and woke up at 12 am or about 13 minutes after I was highly upset with ME because I was supposed to go to the library and study until 2 am It is 8 weeks before my life is determined: academic death or homicide—possibly suicide by choice I studied at 1 am and again at 1:30am I became re-pissed with myself because my other studies included lots of writing, research and TIME—TIME is what I lost My mind simply stepped away Why? All because I slept There are not enough hours in the day, so I guess I will marry Afrin But before I do I want everyone to know I meant all the best Send my condolences my unborn thoughts.
