Death I Do Not Fear


Death I do not fear
Because it will come one year
Live forever I will not
For everyones fate is to die and rot

Fearing death is a waste of time
For this is how I felt when I wrote this rhyme
Though I wish to live forever you see
Death is only for an eternity

So on a rainy day in a graveyard
Please send no flowers, pictures, or cards
For death did not scare me in life
And my death was natural with no gun or knife

    Nice poem in rhyme. 'Death is only for an eternity' Good line. And remember that before you were born was also an eternity. (Report) Reply
