Life and Death

The bright light of a new beginning, 

Crawling turns into walking, 

Running to the playground grinning, 

New school, new you, new friends, 

Graduation becomes a challenge, 

College an even bigger one to manage. 

It all spins into a beautiful lie. 

Eat, work, sleep, in the blink of an eye, 

The painful truth becomes clear. 

Death is a dark hood that is coming near.
