To sadly see the parting

of this enigmatic youth,

no one saw it coming,

no one knew the truth.


Elzu wasn't scared

he didn't scream, he didn't cry,

he wasn't afraid to leave

although it was wrong for him to die.


His death was aptly tragic,

to reflect the life he lived,

no one seemed to know about

all the work, that he did.


Though we're sad to see him go

although it doesn't seem right,

maybe he will be more accepted,

in the afterlife.

The End
