the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 17


Each day someone will die

Become just another memory

Who will make many cry

To grieve for death’s fee


Each day someone will disappear

From the face of this world

Each day someone will shed a tear

For some dead boy or girl


The person at the window

You see his face everyday

But one day he will fade

The wind will take him away


That little child with her mother

Holding each other’s hand

No matter how much they love each other

Death will steal one from this land


An old couple who stood together

Their faces wrinkled but warm

One day both shall cease to exist

As they lie in each other’s arm


The saddened girl at the balcony

She was blessed with life

But she chose to throw it away

And end it in a moment of strife


The roaring fire of the summer

Spreading from room to room

As majestic as it is

It means someone’s doom


Their faces tattered with frowns

Their eyes glisten with tears

Their mouth words of comfort

As they live over the years


Will sorrow of a lost one fade

Even after all is gone

When everything seems different

Will it mean a new dawn


What happiness could death bring

What can it give to men

What kind of benefit with it

As it robs one more from this land




a definition of what death means to me
