Death's Fears & Secrets (Blank Verse)


I have learnt some things about death recentl
this is what I have discovered

Death is a race, it is more then one being
It kills people everywhere everyday as it can't be everywhere
Unless it was more then one

Death is a secret, it is livings worst kept secret
For we are surrounded by death in life
Constantly we fear it, as it must fear us

Death has its fear, that is the end of everything
For when the universe is gone and nothing is left
Death end, and ceases to exist

Death plays its games, every few centuries or millenium
It lets us thrive to the point where we are too many
Then it kills us excessively in multiple ways

Death is merely us, though invisible
It wonders too, looking for something to do
While it wonder the universe
It has purpose

Amongst the flowers I
