When Not If - Poem by Shueyb Boyer

When death comes
I shall welcome it
With wide open arms
Because I anticipated it
But Let it come before day breaks
For I was born before day broke
So if death takes me before day breaks
I didn't exist I was just an illusion
To my family I was just an intrusion

When death comes
I hope it comes with peace
And when I’m laid to rest
I pray the earth has enough space

When death comes
It will be on time
I won’t leave before my time
My time was scheduled for part-time
I only pray
My time spend wasn't wasted
If it is let the good out weight the ignorance
I sometimes expressed out of hatred
