Poetry: “On death”

A few words on one of those topics that mankind has always thought about.

***~***~***~***

On death

It’s not death that I fear at all
But the void it leaves behind
An emptiness
That can’t be filled
Not even if you try

It’s not the end that brings me fear
But the journey to that point
A sluggish march
As bodies fail
With very little help

It’s not my own departure
That still keeps me up at night
It’s all the things
You leave behind
That makes you cling to life
