To Dread or Not to Dread

To Dread or not to Dread


"The world is neither fair nor unfair"

sang Robert Smith


The philosophical battle

we must all face in the end

is what to think of death


Death, the unyielding

Death, the mask of the spirit

Death, the obsession of the broken


For some it is sweet release

While others view it as

a hell to never look upon or accept


Flesh becomes bone

Bone becomes ash

Ash becomes carbon


The soil smiles at the gift

While we dread our fate


Perspectives shift

People grow

Lives change


The only advice I

can give you is to

love before Thanatos

has had his say
