Don'T Fear Death Poem by Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Blok

Don'T Fear Death

Rating: 3.3

Don't fear death in earthly travels.
Don't fear enemies or friends.
Just listen to the words of prayers,
To pass the facets of the dreads.

Your death will come to you, and never
You shall be, else, a slave of life,
Just waiting for a dawn's favor,
From nights of poverty and strife.

She'll build with you a common law,
One will of the Eternal Reign.
And you are not condemned to slow
And everlasting deadly pain.

Death.. a grim reminder that everything that once took birth comes to an end.. only sustenance is prayers to help us ease through the experience.

I just love this poem because of the reminder it gives us that death is an inescapable corollary of life. The only constant in a set of variables! Great poem!

The Russians certainly experienced a lot of death in the 20th century.

Man is mortal and death is certain, it is an eternal truth, thus, one should not think about the unpredictable timing of ones death and become unhappy. We should utilize optimum period of life in living life meaningfully and extending whatever help we can give to people less fortunate than us. The poem with a philosophical touch. Thought provoking and meaningful.10+

Greatly examined...indeed death doesn't bring what we believe concludes to be a disaster.There is hope and the good side of it.What a wonderful poem, am glad it was shared!

Death bugs me because I will die not knowing how the stories around me end. Otherwise I think this poem is spot on
