Death Around Us Death Around Us

Death Around Us Death Around Us

Death, death
the nauseating thought of it,
keeps people unseen dreams locked away forever,
and people inventions away from the present world,

Death, death,
Grief enveloping the clouds around,
streams of tears remembering time never to be seen again,
people never to greet again,
places never to go again.

Death, death
continuing to torture at the summit and at the bottom,
people who are not connected in any way,
fall under the same hammer of sorrow and pain.

Death, death,
bringing pain to people around you,
not respecting their “feelings”,
or the importance of those you took,
but greedily snatching them away.

Death, death,
you may conquer so much,
but your end is coming,
when you shall and will be conquered,
and will no longer rise,
to haunt the living again.

  1. i like this somber work though i started to enjoy it from the third stanza.
    good one.

  2. Death around us death around us??
    Ok O°˚˚˚!

    1. Yep.

      Death is all around us. Gbabe!

  3. “keeps people unseen dreams locked away forever,
    and people inventions away from the present world,”

    Both uses of ‘people’ are missing the apostrophe s.

    Well done though.

  4. Echoing @Adaobi Okwy, the third stanza is my favourite, like that line ‘continuing to torture at the summit and at the bottom’ My sincere thoughts: this is not a great poem, but it’s an Ok one. Keep writing man, the seed is there.. Grow it Grow it…

  5. whether great or small
    death is man’s last wealth
    going down health

    death’s a fall
    a way of union
    with THE MASTER

    death, death, oh death……………..
