“Whiplash Redemption” by Mark Krajnak

Whiplash Redemption_mkrajnak_072018

Ashes to ashes,

Dust to dust.

Everything dies, baby.

Both the wicked and the just.


That would be a true little ditty, ain’t it?

The question is, what do you do with that time between the cradle and the pine box.

Are you a productive member of society . . . Or are you a rat?

Are you following dreams . . . or creating nightmares?

Because, in the end, when you stand under the cold moonlight,

You realize things ain’t always what they seem.

There’s a quiet you can’t describe, and a life you didn’t expect.

Good things come to an end.

Memories leave your bones.

All that’s left is to seek redemption.
