Death

It's weighty
Like a burden on all of us
Back-breaking
Chilling
Tangible
Everywhere

Today
Death's harsh reality
Is as obvious as ever.
Reminding us
His existence
Pain
Horror
Last moments.

Everywhere
Someone mentions another
What an early death!
A heart attack
Or a stroke
Mixed signals
Either way it doesn't matter

Death is death
Cold
Rigor mortis
Unimaginable
Unspeakable
Irrational
Why?

Death


The author's comments:
I found out that our school's superintendant died last Friday and it reminded me of how awful death really is.
