The Final Journey


When death embraces us,
tenderly touching our lips to steal our final breath,
surrender willingly to its seduction,
for we must give ourselves completely, heart and soul.
We should not be afraid,
for there is nothing to fear from the inevitability of death.
It is the ultimate adventure
to an unknown destination, where the revelation of the mysteries, comes to all.

    I wish to be wise and brave when my time comes. I crave or death many a times thinking it to be an answer to all my troubles but the real feelings must be similar to the ones depicted here. So beautiful and so easy to understand. Thanks (Report) Reply

    Great writing. This is a complete contradiction to Dylan Thomas' words: - rage, rage against the dying of the light. (Report) Reply

    Loved this poem. It's beautiful!
    I wish death's seductions were truly as soft and smooth as you've said, and the transformation as natural.
    Thanks, dear poet, for the courage your poem has provided me with. (Report) Reply
