243 (who?)
Do you fear your own death?
Is it hard to conceive?
Draw in your last breath, then-
Your last breath will leave.

Isn't it strange to think,
That there's a timer above your head?
A countdown you can't see,
That finishes when you're dead.

Don't you ever wonder,
What it'll be like when you're gone?
I bet the world will keep on spinning.
There will be another dawn.

But the harsh reality behind it-
We're all going to die.
There's no reason to try to fight it
Not even to question why.

It makes me wish that I could have a little more to give,
Because I'm not afraid of how I'll die...

I'm afraid of how I'll
The one certain thing about everybodies life is that we will all eventually reach death. And death can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people. The important thing is to make sure that when death arrives, we feel as though we've accomplished everything that we were meant to do with our time on this wonderful green/blue, life sustaining planet of ours.

I just hope that I'll be that ready
Whenever my time actually -does- come...

And I hope that you will be too.

I wrote this after a friend of mine died:

My Golden One, My Beauty,My Sweet One.
Be for me the Mashiah and stay with me always.
Maybe it’s too late, beyond life and death
You were my real mate I do now know that.

My dear little one, I wish I would drop dead
As long as I live now i just wait for you
To at last embrace each other in real
Two skeleton ech other, how good we will feel.

I would love to lay down on your tomb
Letting te be covered all night by the snow.
They would find my frozen body next dawn.
And I would with eternal love sink forever down.

Sooo I noticed that when in your poem, you wonder what happens after you die..? A lot of people do, in fact I noticed that everyone who commented pretty much doesn't really understand. And I just want to tell you that there is hope. A lot of people think that will be a paradise or some happy place or peaceful place after one dies. And being ready isn't just accomplishing everything you wanted to do on earth. Are you ready means more do you know where you're going..? Just want to put it out there that heaven and hell are real, don't want to scare you but that is the reality. And here is the hope: Jesus. You see we were all born sinners and deserve eternal death. But Jesus came and took the punishment for us cause He loved us that much, we just have to believe in Jesus, ask for forgiveness and accept His gift of eternal life. It's that easy. I know there's some people that "don't care about religion" or "don't believe in that stuff" but its not a religion, its a relationship with God through Jesus. He is real and created everything. Sorry this is a long message but I felt inspired and felt like telling you of the hope. This is a great poem, by the way. :hug:
