What is Death? Death is neither here nor there Death is seen most everywhere Death is not such a scary thing Death is an inevitable happening Death is not black not white Death is something in which we have a right Death is not there to fear Death is something we all should cheer Death has always been a site Death is something some people fight Death can in a way be sweet Death can be something we can cheat If I am sick and in pain Death is something I want to reign I do not want my family to mourn Cause death is something I have sworn Will be the thing we have not known Can be the thing which is our home What is Death? I do not know Death is somewhere we all will go This is not meant to be a morbid thing so please try to understand it rather then read into it. I wrote this about 18 years ago when I began writing poetry. It was published in my school newspaper in JR High and about 10 yrs ago online. Just give me your thoughts on it. Thanks

Wow.That's pretty good.It's really...deepish.I've been published a few times.Do you belong to a site called Poetry.com? You could put that on there and get it published into a whole bunch of books.I've won awards from that site for a poem I wrote for my mom.
