13 A Passing Decree

Death sighed
The living were so tedious
They all have to die
Some sooner than others

The end journey is always the same
I don’t come running to them
But if I visit
Most cannot get away
Some do seem to beat the rap
Their time was not really up
I called to warn
Do no try to help me along the way
Cherish the life you are leading
Treasure those around you
Remember …
Death is the ultimate adventure

I know each number
Before any are born
And when the clock ticks its last
There is never anywhere to run

One thought on “13 A Passing Decree

  1. Some interesting perspectives on death personified you have here. I especially like these two lines —
    “do not try to help me along the way”
    “death is the ultimate adventure”
