DEAR DEATH By Okanlawon Khalid Olansile

Written by Editor

Unequivocal is you

Unquestionable you are

Inevitable you are

You picked at random

You picked carelessly

You picked regardless

Disrespectful you are

Less concerned you always act

If man could see some future

He will seek seeing Your days of coming

No man gets to overcome your fear

No one prepares to meet you

No man could pray for your visit

You brought moments into life

Tears into Human Existence

Fears into Human Existence

Panic into Human Existence

To live is certain

To die is more certain


  The fear of man in the land of the living

   The god of the Underworld roaming in the land of the Living

 The manifestation in pitch black

  The figurative opposite of white

   An occurrence of yours has no competition

   Irretrievably is your QUEST

 Irreparable is your swiftness — Slowly FAST & Fastly slow, YET

    You come in a bolt of lightening

   DEATH, Multiple ways of being lured to the underworld of mystery

   Making it so hard for man in the land of living to preserve lives.

    If man could strike with you a deal of Immortality,

     It would be of no use because those before us came forth & went back.

 The pioneer of Darkness plundering the psyche of the Living — In your Dictionary “ONCE BITTEN , BEING SHY is left for the detached soul to say for it’s shyness.

    DEATH, The moving dichotomy of LIFE

    The heart striker

    The Heart-breaker

    The tear giver

    The Agony distributor.

Death, the warning to those that are living for they soon are about to be like them.

   The hurtful truth ; Flowing with the beautiful lie (LIFE) as if they both made a pact.

   The tireless and soulless Undertaker,

    Depictions aren’t fit to figuratively to put a picturesque on how you literally look like

   Much verbatim in actions rather in words, takes no negotiations with any mortal for a later comeback.

      The one Punishes, The Finisher

    The Executor of LIFE

  Lurking at everyone’s corner in different form but of the same taste — A BITE of it’s REAPER.

    DEATH, such creation you are,

     A beast of no companion

   An unaccommodating guest that never fails

    The Ageless wanderer.

    The Evergreen Plunderer.

   In differences, comes the similarities & in similarities comes the differences.

    DEATH, A throat clogged of man in the land of the living.

    Such a complex dimension you are.

      The foreshadowing premonitions of the things that are about to come tomorrow — The teller of man “You don’t know the value of what you have till it’s gone”

    The voice that hollers at the head of everyone.

    The Insalubrious one.

To you
