Ruler of this Town
I stood there, looking at the destruction that I had caused. I couldn’t prevent this war from happening. I couldn’t save anyone, not even my own family. My two amazing children and my beautiful wife. How much I long to hold them tight and to tell them that we made it out alive. However that isn’t the case. Everyone was gone and it was all my fault. How could I let this happen, I was the ruler of this village. I should have protected them better. I should never have let them out of my sight. I walked through the streets of the village and all I could see were crumbling buildings and ruins that were once a thriving village. I walked past the center of town and I remember all the times that I had brought Autumn and Phoenix here when they were little. All that was left of it were pieces of broken pavement and fallen down buildings. I saw the park and it made me think of the day that I met Marie, how I wish she was still here with me. I wanted to live a happy life and be with Marie forever. Forever never happened. I always think that I should have perished along with the rest of my village. I had no purpose left in life. My happiness was taken away from me. All that I had left were the memories of what once was my home, my life, and my whole world. Marie, Autumn, Phoenix, my village, my people, they were all gone. I stopped walking and picked up a sword that I had seen lying between the tall overgrown grass. As I held it up to my chest I said to myself, “I, Sayra, will die happy knowing that I will get to see my loved ones again.” Then I pressed it into my heart and fell to the ground. As I laid there, I thought of my past and smiled, I couldn’t wait to see my family again and to hug them tightly. Then I took my final breathe and died.
