Somewhere in depths of winter, tick,
Your mind is weak and and empty, tock,
Tracks running through your body, tick,
Await their final feeding.
 
Meanwhile in full blown summer, tick,
Your tiny body withered, tock,
Tears rock you slow and gentle, tick,
You escape the world delivered.
 
You are strong and hearty, tick,
With spring in all it’s vibrance, tock,
Speed quickly towards your family, tick
While breathless winds engulf you.
 
In fall you hear them whisper, tick,
Too soon for lessons learnt, tock,
Climb up in your despair, tick,
The fall late for their concern.
 
Somewhere inside an energetic whirlwind,
Building, expanding and gaining momentum,
Till Time tells You when,
This space insists it must escape.

The inevitability of death is truth. We all will die but does how and when we die make any difference? Only to the living?

Try this from St John of the CrossThe Living Flame Of Love1. O living flame of love
that tenderly wounds my soul
in its deepest center! Since
now you are not oppressive,
now consummate! if it be your will:
tear through the veil of this sweet encounter!2. O sweet cautery,
O delightful wound!
O gentle hand! O delicate touch
that tastes of eternal life
and pays every debt!
In killing you changed death to life.3. O lamps of fire!
in whose splendors
the deep caverns of feeling,
once obscure and blind,
now give forth, so rarely, so exquisitely,
both warmth and light to their Beloved.4. How gently and lovingly
you wake in my heart,
where in secret you dwell alone;
and in your sweet breathing,
filled with good and glory,
how tenderly you swell my heart with love.

Appreciate your feedback always Cory :) Death has been a big motivator for me but I'm hoping to get my poetry more light and lovely eventually!
