In Death

Rating: 5.0

I contemplate my life,
Each struggle and each strife.

In death, are we not the same?
Brothers in the soil,
From whence we came?

Here I lie, on my last breath
I've lived my life, I welcome death.

A very good poem that leaves the reader face to face with the perplexing facts of life and death. The poet handles language as clever as a bee, who knows well where the roses are and how to get honey out of them.

Wow, do you know how ambigious that comment was? And do you know if I spelt ambigious right?
