jim chen (Taipei)
a road called life, end is death
when i was a child, i did not know this road
i did not recognize its existence
but now, i know the name of this road is 'life'
and end of it is death, and death only
no escape, and no exception
death might seem to be scary
cruel, and painful as it seems
but as experience, courage, and
age all added up as they will always be
death becomes an acceptable agreement that
when finish walking down this road
we shall get rid of our bloody shell
gently follow our Father to where we've always belonged
now, isn't death not horrifying anymore?
