What Does Death Know?

Death gets everything.

It claims 



Eventually, we are embraced by Death.

It takes us into its arms

tells us we are tired

tells us we can sleep.



We tolerate it.

We accept the end

and go

some unwillingly

some too soon.


Even those who resist

learn to settle

and accept the fact of life

that is Death.


Fears, vanquished.

Love, lost.

So many left behind.


Always taking more.

It does not discriminate 

between those of evil 

and those of good.


It just takes.

It always wins.

We can never outsmart it

for in the end.


Death gets everything.


Alas, Death knows nothing.
