We, The Living



We, The Living…
Those who remain
When your heart stops beating
And theirs overflows with pain

We, The Living…
Those who held your hand
And ran, now abandoned
Struggle even to stand

We, The Living…
Those who found an identity
From you, now grapple with meaning
And strain their eyes to see

We, The Living…
Those you left behind
To deal with the questions
When there are no answers to find

We, The Living...
Begin to die, 
One day at a time.

Hey Mentalie!

Thank you so much :) And same here - my first Ayn Rand was We, The Living. Sadly it remains one of the only two Ayn Rands I have read and I am doing nothing to change that fact :(

We, the people
born to experience
