Death. Death the great leveler.

We will all succumb to it.
One day our bones will turn to rot.
Death, come weeping from above,
Death, the deliverance for us all

What you say is the quintessence of Continental Baroque poetry. It's called [i]vanitas[/i] poetry.

@helenS I hate death though. But I've come to accept it. This mortal coil will transpire and expire. If there was a loving a God like the Christians proclaim. Why subject us to be torn from our loved ones?

@basilfawlty89 You will just go back to where you came from. No reason to hate death, or be afraid of it.

@helenS but it is. I don't want to lose my consciousness. I want to see the loved ones I lost again.

Some before others, and others endure life longer than wanted but we’ll all be worm food.

@Powderflask true. But in my time I hope to meet those I lost. Even if just briefly.

Indeed... so true.. I'd prefer it if it didn't bother coming to greet me for many decades yet
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
@Adaydreambeliever the same. But I know my time will come. And as hard as it was, I've accepted it.
