Death Will Come

The clock ticks away
Our souls it desires
It awaits our death 
Hour after lonely hour

Nothing stops its

Ghostly rounds
For at ones birth
Our souls it found

Our life is always

Just a tick or tock
For someday we
Will surely stop

That puts it all in perspective!

No one escapes-
all must leave.
It seems while we are here
We become blind to what lies beyond.
We know we will go
We try to accept-
but it is easy sometimes
to escape from Earths pain

Some say we choose to be born,
A family, a time-
I think we all go into life
Blind n
N Leave blind
we have to leave our human self

Choosing to is a way to cheat- I think!

Thanks for the deep thoughts-
Hope you are around awhile more!

When I had to go up North after my kin
put a bullet in his head I was asked to write something.
Not saying it is the best but it was how I was feeling.

Yes we can only live for the now.
Most will never see the clock stop.

That really resonated with me today...the new year has started on a rather sombre note hasn't it? - Bowie, Rickman, and now Glenn Frey; and for some unfortunates a family member as well...we never know when the ticking stops, and how.

Time stands still for no one.
Still it seems to rush buy for a few of us.
Then would we really want it to stop or even
run backward for us?

Sorry for your family's pain- I've had a few the past year choose to leave also- It just causes too much heart-ache for those left here tho-
