Graveyard #BlogFlash2012 Day 17

I am the middle child
I am an only child

A baby born
Into the arms of Death

A teenager lost
to Cancer

I should visit my sisters,
My grandparents,

Remembering my uncles
And my aunt buried elsewhere

But the stillness and
Headstones unsettle me

Such a clear reminder
I am the only one
Still Standing
