Don't Fear Death - Poem by Carlos Butler

Roses are red, Violets are blue.
I Don't Fear Death and Neither shall you.
When your time has come.
Don't plea, Don't beg Asking for more time, Because you shall soon be dead.

Go along peacefully, with your heart cleared of dread because of your inevitable time when you will be dead. Be released of your pain and suffering of your mortal life.

Walk into the eternal abyss. Go and transition from your frail and fragile body to an eternal and undying one.

When Death walks to you with hand held out for you take it willingly and peacefully.

But before Death comes. Your goal in life is not to live forever, Because you will never make it, but to create something that will.

When your time has come.
Don't plea, Don't beg Asking for more time because you shall soon be dead.

Death comes for all, so don't worry with fear and dread
Because of your inevitable time when you will be dead
Go along peacefully with a smile on your face
Because there will be none thing there to save you from your fate

So greet Death like an old friend and accept your fate
Because you will have none thing to fear, Cause you shall soon be dead

Don't Fear Death
