"Death"

What is Death?
I do not know of it
What is Death?
I don’t know one bit
People are afraid of dying
People screaming, babies crying
One look at Death and you crumble down
What is Death?
See me drown
She heard a gunshot and then ducked
She cried silently, and then said life sucked
She saw people falling and dark fierce eyes
The victims’ last words were nothing but sighs
So if you ever come face to face with death
Close your eyes and take a deep breath


The author's comments:
Dark, but death does occur. It is unreal to think we live in a world where shootings don't happen. This was inspired by the tragic shootings that have occurred lately.
