Gone

Blog Post created by OldBones-Larry on Jul 10, 2020

Many years ago, as I was taking a load of goods across the country, I became stuck in a traffic jam.

As I passed under an underpass I saw the following scrawled on a wall.

 

I used to have money...

           Gone!

I used to have a job...

           Gone!

I used to have someone...

         Gone!

I used to have health...

         Gone!

I used to have passion...

        Gone

I used to have love...

         Gone!

I used to live...

           Gone!

I have no money...

I have no job...

I have nobody...

I am sick and broken...

I am alone...

I am unloved...

I only exist...

I wish I was...

     GONE!!!!

 

I was told that a body had been found close to where this was written.

Had they ended their pain?

Just slipped on the walkway beside the upper level?

I don't know exactly what happened, but these words have stayed with me since then.

I hope the author found their peace.
