Death is Notorious!

I sit down in solitude reflecting
But how long will I ponder on this demon?
The unnumbered people snatched by death
To accidents
To childbirth
To Suicide
To mild sicknesses
To debilitating illnesses
And those who slept and never woke up
Where do I begin from?
Our Actors and Actresses
Young and old
Rich and Poor
Some I know
Others are strangers
But death is notorious
Ambiguous and mysterious
They cried and laughed
They sang and danced
They prayed and hoped
But death have no mercies
And left them with no choice
I sit here and ponder
Will it be you?
Will it be me?
Today, tomorrow, or next?
Don’t brood about this reality
Don’t try to run away
We never will be able to escape its noose
Your pain is my pain
We are all in this together
