    there are two sides to everything, so is the case with life and death...life is not always bitter, death is not stifling for everyone...situations differ, yes, but life is a tight rope walk, and yes, death is a sleep! i like your presentation of the subject you chose! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Life is bitter for many and perhaps sweet for a few.It often invites us to enjoy, challenge us to take on and defeat us sometimes.It is a tight rope walk for us forced to the circus of living. But its adventure makes it livable for a life time.

    Death on the other hand, is Impish in its monstrous form and remains ever invincible for all. It is stifling as it should be and benumbing in effect and it terminates us for ever. It books our ticket for our departure to anonymity and next we sleep eternally.

    There is no way out... a birth not asked for terminated by death not aspired for...... (Report) Reply

    Wow! We may think and feel the of same thing very different, but this is what makes life interesting and beautiful. I loved The cinquain for life, in my vision could fit for death also. Wonderful pen, thank you for share! (Report) Reply
