Death is inevitable but manageable, years of living on earth is decreasing as the generation increases. Death will be as far as the sun shine and the tides rise and fall

DEATH’S PRINCIPLE

Death stands in the streets

And whispers I shall be no more

When the sun shines no more

When the sun rises from the west and sets in the east

When the broken stone bleeds

 

I shall be no more

When the just born baby tells the mid-wife

Push me back where you pulled me

When the tides rise or fall no more

When the dry season dries up the sea

If you see none of these

Then some day, one day

You shall be my guest

 

Death goes up to he that kips slothfully

And whispers

Better is the day of death than the day of one’s birth

If I were…

I were you, I’ll prepare to die

So my little vanity time on this earth would be commemorated

 

Death laughs and says

I hear them say love is blend

On the contrary, death is unsighted

I trudge with my hands stretched out so I do not fall

Anyone, I mean anyone that comes my way

I hold them tight less I fall
