The Beauty of Death – A Poem

From an unseen womb
to an unknown tomb.
Life happens in diverse phases.
We love life and hate death
because we hold life as an adorable lie
and see death as a horrible truth.
Yet, death is not the opposite of life,
but the opportunity to live again.
Death is not a debt we pay,
It is a gift – the medal for mortality.
Death can be beautiful,
it is the passport to eternity.
Death can be fruitful,
a buried seed births fresh fruits.
Death is a means of transformation.
It is a necessary ending that births
mysterious new beginnings.
We don’t have one life to live,
we are born again every day.
We don’t have one death to die,
we rise out of the ashes every morn.
A new life sprouts at dawn
and death births the afterlife.
Death is bliss, death is a blessing,
death is fragrant, death is freedom.

What’s your description of death? Do you believe that we should live as though today is our last day on earth?

  1. A beautiful scroll
    I had to pause at every inspiring meaning you meditated on with regards to death.
    Soothing and consoling for the everday pang or ache on the daily encounter with seperation and encouraging the confidence in the present and new tomorrows, also new beginnings…..
    Death the passport to eternity
    Powerful

    Happy Sunday to you

    1. Thank you, Cindy.

      All is going well, I am getting stronger through it all. You pop up in my thoughts. Life has taken me through hell and high water but I’m coming out as pure gold and new wine.

      I will visit right away ā¤ā¤. Oh my, did you send me emails? I miss you so much. šŸ˜šŸ˜šŸ˜

      1. Hi Adeleke,

        SOOOOO HAPPY to hear from you my friend. I know all about that so we can share misery and break bread and whine together and reach for pure gold which you penned so well. Ya know… I wrote to you in your last post but went to look for it and couldn’t find it. Who the heck knows for sure.. WP? šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£šŸ¤£

        Oh good, stay in touch and but love and hugs… šŸ’–šŸ¤—

    1. Good morning, mama. You are right. I understand your perspective.

      Most times, we see things differently on this side of eternity, but in the eyes of divinity, if life is a blessing, death is also a blessing.
      Death only becomes a curse when life is a curse. To anyone who lives a good life, death is a good thing.

      We didn’t choose to be born, it’s a blessing. If we can’t choose to live forever on earth, it’s also a blessing.
