The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Death

Death

by

James Bredin



All life here on earth is pre-programmed with a delete date,
Everyone in history was deleted without much debate,
Your own delete date too is programmed somewhere in the sky,
And every single day you get closer to saying good-bye.

Each and every one of us is programmed in this life and place,
Trapped for a period here on earth, tumbling through space,
The only thing sure about this is that one day we will die,
Though some say they will live forever and I do know why.

Because they believe what they were told and they keep the faith,
Others have to wait for the cards and wonder about their fate,
And you canít plan your death because this is also forbidden,
Euthanasia and suicide is a crime and well hidden.

No religion or organization has figured out a way,
Though everlasting life is what the evangelists all say,
And if you are convinced, then you too should keep the faith,
Because this is not likely to come up for official debate.
