Poetry

Life and Death

Death will come knocking

at your door

he’ll find his way in,

there’s nowhere you can go

 

He comes for us all

one fine day

we know not when he’ll call,

he surprises us that way

 

But until he arrives

it’s your choice

to take life in your hands

while acknowledging his voice

 

Do things you enjoy

open your heart

connect with people,

those near and far apart

 

Fall in love

despite your fears

you may get hurt

but it might be worth your tears

 

Make a difference

in the lives of those you meet

it doesn’t have to be big,

it can be small and sweet

 

Take several moments

to soak up the sun

be out in nature

and with it, become one

 

Life’s not about the big bang

or insta-worthy pics

it’s living with courage,

being grateful for little things

 

So, when Death comes knocking

you can greet him with a smile

because you’ll be content

knowing you’ve lived your life
