Death is a broad and vague subject
Only those who understand can rightfully ignore it
And none who can ignore it can truly understand
And those who understand rarely are able to ignore
And those who observe can rarely feel
And those who accuse can never know
The truth is not an answer
It is a question
And the question cannot be true
Without an answer
But what answer can there be for death
Only those who can ignore and understand
Can see and feel the truth
Only those with observation and accusation
Can truly live with death
Others merely live with life
And die
And none can be certain
When knowledge gives way to doubt
Because the few who truly know
Are dead
And misconstrued is there knowledge
They who understand and wish to ignore
Can only end with it becoming them
As their life is taken by the very life that is their own.
