dead men’s names

the main struggle
with being alive
is the constant feeling
of being dead inside

they don’t teach you
about this in school
they make you memorize
dead men’s names
and teach you how
to write out your own
never mentioning that
one day you’d be
just as dead yourself
but no one else
would have to remember

best not to think
about it though
simpler to let yourself
be forgotten naturally
