Streets paved with gold
Streambeds lined with gems
Never a tear to shed
As spirits joyfully sing praises
Why do we fear death
When such beauty awaits us?
Or is it that we fear the dying
Rather than the death?
Though leave this world through pain we may
Fret not for what lies on the other side
Encourage your kin to envy, not mourn
For you are finally leaving this sad world behind
Death is not something to fear
The world has become a horrid wasteland
Heaven is a far grander place to live
Than the earth we were born into
Mourning births, celebrating death
There are those who do it
Understanding the terror of living on this earth
Understanding the delight of existing in Heaven
Drugs and cures
We try to change our fate
But why prolong our journey
To a most wondrous, magical place?
I fear the process of dying
But I embrace the result: death
For I will finally be rid of this world
And my soul can at last rest in peace.
Original Poem: 10-30-2
