Dawn Michelle

Rookie (8/3/91 / Van Nuys, California)


Death drives people
To do the impossible
To talk to those
Who can’t respond
To cry over one
Who cannot comfort
To leave behind
The life they knew
Death draws people
Together as one
Healing our souls
In a time so fragile
Holding another
With love and sorrow
Sharing emotions
We prefer to hide

    Very nicely said Dawn, Death is a very crucial time of life, yes it brings family and friends together and we console each other at this saddened time. I like to celebrate at this time of life however. I join you in the positive on this time. I believe a celebration is appropriate due to the fact the person chosen no longer is in any pain, no longer has to worry about bills of any kind, has already paid their dues on earth, no more jealousy or humiliation. They have so much to look forward to, an everlasting life of peace and joy, Wow! ! ! I look forward to that. The saddess comes of course mainly becasue we will miss our loved ones. That's the way I see it. Thankyou Dawn---Excellent poem---Excellent writer----Truly divine soul---Melvina--- (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
