Awaiting

Rating: 5.0
how to avoid death's door
when permanently open

not enticing, but swallowing
all those who have gone before

awaiting those who are close
to unpack their baggage

nothing is needed on any day
not even a thought of yesterday

Death oft comes unexpectedly, only if you opt for euthanasia can you prepare as your own likings.

The permanently open door, a great image. When that day comes all you need to pack is a bottle of rum!
