Seemingly… By Toni L.A. Cross

 

If death is but the means
To a glorious end
Then is the scythe my foe
Or a dark cloaked friend?
This knife poised above
Seems ready to kill
Yet my heart is waiting
Despite the silent chill
And if the very night
Is hiding beauteous gain
Then is it really dreadful
Or something to obtain?
For exquisite things
Are born of deepest woe
And ultimate perfection
Might soon be set aglow

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
