Waiting for the Biopsy Results

Waiting for the Biopsy Results

Eventually, the body

gives out…

We all realize this

when mortality is explained

to us as children…

The day of our birth is

a beginning of our death sentence…

Is it morbid to drive

past graveyards during

the weekend?

Knowing that I might be

joining them…

Sooner than later.

I guess every writer

worth his weight in

Spam has commented

about the end sometime during

his or her jottings…

The fear of what lies beyond…

Well, the old saying—it is

what it is rings true once in a while…

I will be finding out.

Soon enough.
