DEATH


Death is something we all can't escape
Creatures of all sizes and shape
Death is a part of our existence
It is the judgement of our conscience
Death is an act of nature
For it is written in our scripture
Death is the making of humanity
Violence and war recorded in history
Death is the end of all our pain
Heroes are born when they are slain
We all have the right to live longer
We all have the choice to die younger
Death is something we all want to delay
For we want to see our family grow and play
Death is a friend and an enemy
A friend to those who suffers
An enemy to those believers
Death is something most of us fear
Losing those we love so dear
But what death is simply trying to say
That we are no longer needed here to stay
We might have died young or old
Our stories will always be told
The souls free at last
Our flesh would turn to dust.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
