Death Doesn't Care


Life comes
Then it goes
Not picking favorites
But simply taking
Those whose turn it is
Death doesn't care
If your poor or old
Rich or young
Death only cares
For whose time
Has come

    Excellent! Short. Succinct. Final. Love the last lines:

    ...Death only cares
    For whose time
    Has come (Report) Reply
