Inevitabilities -/- Dying

13:9
Inevitabilities

Resenting Death’s inescapable inevitability
Life’s first folly

Good lives eventually conclude
Like excellent parties

We follow parents heavenward
As they, theirs

Worthy lives contentedly led
Approach death peacefully

***

Lives rise then fall
Like daily suns

Our days are axestrokes
Felling life’s oaks

Mosts wonderful world empires
Lapse one day


13:10
Dying

When death cherishes us
Bodies wither uselessly

As pain permeates bodies
Pain’s thresfold rises

Changing age cages pains
Death’s paeans relieve

In dying we live –
Every day delicious

***

Spindrift tiredness, distended discomfort,
Attends terminal illness

Receiving demise-dreaming well-wishers daunting –
Keep visitation short

Deathdoorean moods rapidly divert,
Avoid jocular effusions
