Joe's long walk

He stared long and hard into those cold eyes, striving to catch a glimpse of remourse in them ... less than an hour between him and the electric chair, ... between life and death ... and yet, ...

How many wrong turns does one have to take before ...

before one gives up trying to find the right path, and start walking down the road one is on?

before one accepts that dreams are just that ... dreams ... and reality mandates consciousness ... wake up!

before one realizes that wishes are only granted in fairytales and that this life ain't no fairytale?

before one gives up praying ... only the prayers of the righteous are answered. Right?

How long does it take for a man to give up? ... to stop rebelling? ... to conform? ... to accept the pointlessness of it all? ...

How long before one gives up grappling with fierce desires and just goes with the flow? Why bother about the consequences? One has to die someday, right? Is there such a thing as right or wrong? Aren't your needs and desires greater than that of everyone else? Isn't that what the world requires from you? So when you do what's required of you, why are you being singled out and punished? ... Damn it, who are you kidding? ... it was plain wrong ... you major league screw-up!

Does it end here? ... or were your parents right? Is there heaven? Is there hell? Is there any way to be sure about that?

Damn! Can't you even remember one simple prayer?


"Joe, you'll have to give us the mirror now. Its almost time."
