Life & Death

Life grows and nourishes,

it’s warm and loving

and promises 

a better life,

a better love,

a better death.



death ends and stops,

it’s cold and revenge

and broken promises


Life is a part of Death,

Death is a part of Life.

When does Life end,

and Death begin?


Life is cruel and short

and will take you to court

where you stand to decide 

and lose all you prove.

It judges you,

no empathy,

no sympathy.


Death is freeing

though you’re not breathing,

it dances and prances

like a child on Christmas.

No life can be with death,

no death can be with life,

but somehow 

they’re not so different,

not so separated.
