in memory of kenneth wayne bennett

my grandpa died on friday march the 5th and this is a poem i wrote dedicated to him. may he never experiance any more pain as he passes into a better place. farewell my friend, my family, my beloved, and my grandfather. may your soul finally rest in peace.

death is but a word to some

but for others its a cruel reality.

but it is also never really the end

for as one door opens,

another door must close

so goes the way of life.

it may seem like the end

but in all truth

its just a new begining.

live life to the fullest

so that there are no regrets

in death.

just know that as one life is taken

another is born into the world

to take its place.

everything has a balance

and death is a part of that balance,

its hard, i know, but it was never ment to be easy.

so as that door in front of you opens

and you step inside

dont look back and wonder what could have been

if you had chosen the door that now has closed.

life is also but a word

a word known by all,

if only for a short time.

from the new born infant

to the old gray haired couple

they all have breathed the air,

they all have felt the blood running through their veins,

they all have seen the things around them.

and they all have known life

just as some day

they all shall know death.

I loved this poem I could really feel you're pain. and you're right to some death is just a word. But to others it can mean a whole lot more. For example i belive that death serves a lot more purpose in the world than life does, and if you ask me life is a very confusing concept but death will always have it beat by a mile.

thank you for commenting. and i feel the same way, death will always be simple while life trys to screw you over. life is just a stop on the road to something bigger than all of us.

I feel really sorry for you. There hasn't been many deaths around me, thanks to God, all of my loved one's are still alive so I can't really feel your pain but it was your way of writing/expression that really made me fell into it. I hope you soon snap out of this turmoil u've been through :(
