Death,
Always taking lives.
Sometimes giving lives back,
Only to those who deserve it.

Falling ,falling from the rooftop.
Slamming into the driveway.
Broken neck, shallow breath.
Snapped and demolished.

Struggling to keep alive,
Dying but came back.
Metal as a replacement neck.
Cold, unmoving.

Relearning to walk,
Hardened features, determination.
Never giving up,
Wanting to help others.

Helping those who lost,
Limbs, fingers and toes.
Others struggling like he was.
He was giving back, helping.

Never failing,
Helping them,
Not letting them give up.
Always by their side.
