Life Medley - Poem by stephen yusuf

Life that some may live, some give
Sacrifice? Martyrdom? Slavery? —while others Clive
A moment with our surfing breath, a lifetime without it drive
Eternity, a twisted truth more real than faith thrive
Today we here, tomorrow we aren't—mortality a gift of all mortals
No one leave the earth alive! Our horror movie!

Down town a man laid his life for a lady
Went out that early morning to grab her macaroni
He gasp through a blood filled breath after the car he scarcely saw rammed into him throwing him to the sideway—oh sally, his ally!
Through aches of pain, stiffening of breath and dripping of tears—he struggled to stay alive but, from the over battered body the spirit could no longer live, so it left before sally could even reach to say goodbye.
Her yelp of scream, the piercing reckon of his depart painted a stent picture of horror as she recall his last words—"I shall be back, I love you". He never fulfills that promise, she cried!

In a realm same as that which in others, love flooded
A man came-in strapped with explosives and with gun fully loaded
With mission to kill, steal and destroy all that life has bestowed, given in its kind hearted gesture in measures full and braded
In that assembly were men with light, heavy, huge and varied burden met to lay their cares down, he also came to lay his life down—martyrdom? (He thought so!) . While they dance, he approaches, sweating. Almost refusing but fully convinced to die! If not here, a refusal will kill him anyway, whispering to him-self in words of concealed meaning.
He squeezed the detonator… and… Everything went blank.
Life! Given by the Creator. Taken by the creature.
