Dialogue with Death
What is your destination?
Why are you so grim and gruesome?
And not known to procrastination
Why do you rob the life from a being?
While loved ones sob seeing you fleeing?
You hate life, you hate laughter
You leave strife to follow after
Yet in cases, where one’s in pain
One often chases your tail in vain!
Even you’re welcome in certain places
When pain’s gruesome and hell fire blazes
One holds your hand and breathes one’s last
Then you’re the winner in Life’s last game
When even the sinner can breathe your name
So where are you heading, in this dark night?
With your victim treading a path against light?
You love this duel with a being’s last breath
You’re beastly and cruel
No wonder your name’s Death!
