dark day in the brightness of summer

Such a freakish kind of day. You know, the kind of day where you're relatively untouched and yet feel so numb inside.

Someone dies everyday but it just seems a little cruel to lose an icon like Farrah Fawcett this morning then music legend Michael Jackson this afternoon. One almost a relief as she was finally released from her suffering and the other a shock. And it's all just sad.

what do you leave behind
rising to heights so great
then falling down to the depths
almost obliterating your legacy
were you the prey
were you the predator
now you're gone
questions left unanswered
except for this
what do you leave behind
