    THE GUEST OF ALL TIMES

    There's a place beyond the lands;
    Each passing day brings us anear;
    a place i know not but i un'stand;
    OOh,faith and fate are dear;

    Here, i know not hatred or anger;
    Neither do i know sickness or hunger;
    But love and peace abound;
    Yes,even the ales of color we surmount;

    Adieu to the days of sin and evil;
    And no more the ways of the devil;
    Yeah,the pain of this world no more;
    Like rain,joy 'n happiness pour;

    O death,the meal we all must eat;
    And the cup we all must drink;
    You know not even a brother or sister;
    Funny, not even your mother or father;

    OOh lonely one,not even a home;
    You detest even a friend of your own;
    What about neighbours,i think none;
    But i like you for one reason;

    'Cause you know not riches nor beauty;
    But to the poor you give honour;
    And to the rich thier flaw;

    O he that knows not great names;
    'N takes away from me my sweet days;
    Even my beloved ones he steals away;
    And even my soul you scare away;

    O stingy,selfish ,egocentric minds;
    How i wish you know the truth;
    That nothing indeed belongs to you;
    Not even yourself belongs to you;

    But to he that comes at all times;
    DEATH,the guest of all times.

    I don't know that I've ever read a poem about death. This is a subject that some of us stay away from, for multiple reasons, but your flow was tyte and reflected such truth as well as talent. Nice read MacGeo - he is "truly" the guest of all times!
