Death Is Not A Friend

Rating: 4.7
Death steals from us all the time
Death loves committing crime
Death eerily robs us of our friends
Sisters, brothers and our dear parents.

Death hurts us all the time
And obliges us to spend every dime
That's saved for tough and rainy days
Death continues to terrorize and amaze.
Death, we don't like you

Indeed, death is horrible and devastating event of life. The way you displayed bitter painful aspect of it, enforced me to appreciate your creativity and sensitivity needed to compose a poem with intricate theme like death, an unavoidable conclusion and ultimate destination of ife.

An unorthodox view of death, especially for Christians. But you are right: death robs us of friends and family and we have no say in the matter. Death frightens us, because it is unknown what happens then. 'Death you're...A liar, an imposter and a deadly killer'. Who can argue with that?

Félicitations, Herbert! A very well-written poem. Yes, death is not a friend, but an enemy. Are you aware of these promises: “then the saying that is written will take place: “Death is swallowed up forever... Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting? ” It’s worth looking into!

Yes death does all those things but death is inevitable and to cry about it and feel this way is strange better get used to it Who wants to live forever and to some death comes not only as friend but a blessed relief. Death sits lightly on our shoulder from birth fear of it makes it heavy better to live well than long Enjoyed the poem if not its sentiments
