Favorite Quote:
"To get to the stairway to heaven, you must first cross the valley of the she shadow of death."


-an original quote


Hold your breath for it may be your last
Say goodbye to the ones you love
For you'll soon be in the clouds above
The god of death moves fast

The time of living has passed
It is now when push comes to shove
Stained black is the once white dove
The sea of regret is vast

But to hang your head is to shame
Fear is now infantile
Death is the end of life's game

So lift your head and remember your name
And in the face of death you will smile
"I am ready for you."

I believe the reader can grasp the meaning and message of this poem with out my help. ;) Everyone has an expiration date (well, except vampires), so make sure when your time comes, you are ready.
