The fear of the end is very real.
The unknown void scares many,
yet many have been there
and only a few to return.
Those who do, have no memory,
say it's all black.
Though it does not scare me,
I do not wish it upon myself and I hope others
have the same respect for me too.
In the past I lived in fear,
yet I've been so close I feel it's a part of me now.
I live yet feel dead inside,
the reek of death keeps others away,
the further they move the more I rot.
People have come closer to me
and I've started to change.
The more people live with me
in their lives the more alive I feel,
sometimes the feeling of death escapes me,
yet it always comes back in the end,
as it does for all of man.
