Greed...Of Death Poem by James B. Earley

Greed...Of Death

Rating: 5.0 exist
Through sake of chance
......Some odd result
Of happenstance

Or is...what is
...Supposed to be...
Ordained precise
......By destiny
Must then...we live
..To...simply die
From greed of death
..For want...of why

Life is full of 'why's' James. why this, why that, why should one, why don't we, why is there etc., We have questions repeating themselves right through our lives and we pretty well never get the answers on the really difficult ones. I like the way you have presented this 'question' short but very much to the point. Excellent thinking. love and hugs Ernestine XXX

This is a fascinating and quite thought provoking poem, James. In our lives, there are many questions that go unanswered or are unanswerable. For example, who really shot JFK? Is there life beyond our wee solar system? Will the Cubs ever win a world series? Your fine poem, though brief, certainly gets the reader to thinking and is very well written as well. Carl.

This life is not a blindfold chance, It's the fulfilment Of our imbalanced glance. It's not a jouney Of birth, death and rebirth, It is for equipoise with Perpetual bliss and mirth. The stream of life Never dries up, It changes its course Tastes new mix-up. It settles in the eternal ocean At its depth without commotion. CP
