    Death

    Death creeps in like a chilled wind
    in the middle of the night
    Consuming all life within its path,
    taking away souls shining light
    It use to be that death claimed the old
    but nowadays death has gotten Bold
    Acquiring a taste for young souls
    Everyday he gets stronger
    playing with a hand that never folds
    Every time claiming victory
    Billions of souls throughout history
    Some say they've cheated death
    But you see,just it wasn't your time
    So Death let you be
    For Death can NOT be cheated
    No matter what tricks you've up your sleeves
    Your petty taunts and brushes with Death
    Shows signs of a mental disease
    I try to figure out Deaths motive
    and the reason for the souls he choose
    and why sometimes he proudly shows himself
    or like a thief in the night
    stealing away your wealth
    See Death has stolen from me
    Many friends and family
    One day don't you see
    That Death will come to conquer me
    Maybe then I will understand
    the reasons why Death takes
    Why sometimes the just and the good fall prey
    But the Hell raisers seem to stay
    Just who is Death
    and what is Death
    Does he show himself
    on that final breath
    Do you work for God
    On the Heavenly Payroll
    Or do you work for the angel of evil
    or are you just neutral
    I want to know how you were formed
    How your existence came to be
    and who was your very first victim
    and who will be the last victim you will see
    So many questions for you Death
    My mind continues to ponder
    So many answers I don't know
    About this mysterious Dark Wonder
    Death

    Just wanted to put this thread out here.
    Death is always around us
    it has been here for many years
    and still we know so little about such a mysterious thing.

    This is interesting, Nita. And scary, and mysterious, and awesome....Why this person, and not that one? Why someone so young? So many questions surrounding this. I do think you see that tunnel of light, but beyond that???? This was a very thought provoking write, and well posed.

    Nita, I got chills just reading it. I wonder about that too. I have lost so many friends and family member it is countless. This is a nice reality check, because no one knows when it will be their time to go.

    Death is a mysterious wonder, and though many like myself are hesitant about experiencing it; apart of me can rejoice at knowing that death is not the final chapter. That one must die a physical death in order to live eternally in the presence and love of my wife/savior Jesus Christ!
    Peace and Blessings,
