Memento Mori

October 24, 2008
What is death?
Is it light?
Is it dark or is it bright?
Does it fill you with delight?
Is it everlasting fright,
Marked with cruel and gruesome sights?
Is it far too fast approaching,
One’s demise swiftly encroaching?
Can you feel it coming closer,
Your mortality’s imposer?
Does it hurt?
Will you feel your heart stop thumping,
Fail in pumping,
Blood inert?
Is there life after death,
One step past your final breath?
Will you hear the angels sing,
Feel the fluttering of wings?
A paradise for saints and kings?
Or will you feel the fires roar,
Flaming coals strewn ‘cross the floor,
Burning anguish evermore?

it's a good poem/thought, but your title is almost exactly the same as the short story, Momento Mori, so you might want to reconsider the title.
