The Big Secret - Poem by Masharia kanyari

Allow me to share something you shouldn't know,
I am really building myself a cottage,
Its just that I lay each brick with so much purpose,
as I craft the comouflage to pretend its a castle,
so when my time comes to die I shall be proud,
Embrace the tomb I shall have built for myself,
A place my spirit can visit and watch my body decompose...

    Every new day is a step toward the grave and so it's always necessary to be aware and prepared to face the fate,
    Your poem is so moving and arouses alertness. Good work.
