A poet once said
that death is like sleep
we will all grow tired soon
and rest for eternity.

This makes me wonder
why fear death?
I like to sleep
I want to sleep.

I have grown weary
with life's foul storms
My soul has grown weak
In this body of mine

I am ready to dream
for the rest of my life
put me to sleep
I am tired.

How I feel. Plain and simple.

Honestly I feel this way sometimes. I feel tired and I'm like why not pause life?

And I also believe death shouldn't be feared.

Awsome job! :D

This is a great poem! I feel the same way sometimes! Death is nothing to be afraid of, we can't prevent it.

Wow. Just wow. This peice is so beautifully simple and peaceful. It makes death feel and sound like a calm wind or something, just something that happens, like a reward for life. This is wonderful
