Death

Robert Frost 1874 (San Francisco) – 1963 (Boston)



Death
Scary isn’t it?
At least
That’s what everyone tells me
They say their afraid
Of what’s bound to happen
They say they wish
That day won’t come
But that day will come
And take them away
From the place they love

They say it’ll hurt
More than anything else
But I know that’s a lie
Because what can hurt more
Than being here?
What can hurt more
Than going through
this endless loop
Of pain, loss, and sorrow?

I see death
As the end of my pain
The end of my loss
And the end of my sorrow
When death comes
and knocks on my door
I’ll welcome it in with open arms
And maybe then
Will I feel ok
Maybe then
Will I finally be rid
Of this constant pain
That tears me apart
Piece by piece
Day by day

So death
If you can hear me
Come and take me
Because i’m ready
And I am not afraid of you
