Life is Short

Alex Abarca 4/16/14

its not pleasant being in hospitals
especially not a hospital for the elderly

rooms are filled with old people
just watching television

passing halls we found the room number
and inside was my great grandmother
laying motionless

she was alive according to the nurse
but she would live about two to three days
her sons were to ''tired'' to visit that night
they did not visit her living two miles away
we drove four hours two visit her and her own sons didn't visit

not knowing her much
didn't matter
and feeling sad wouldn't help
for it was a good thing
to relieve her of her pain
