DEATH • CALLING 


DEATH•CALLING•
Tired of journeying through dark

days, and the failures of life

Negative air filed her fragile lungs.

_____

She went through the fiery path of fear;

Waiting on fate, like a carriage, to take

her to the other side of life;

resting from her woes, forever.

___

After you’ve done all
After you’ve done all

____

Done all you’ve 

To do,

And life still seem unpleasant 

And crushing, within

____

Don’t turn your back

Against the dream

____

Push through the thick
Clouds standing before you

_____

Small steps

Little believing

Eyes set like a flint on the dream

_____

You’re consumed by your failures

You’re overwhelmed by their 

Expectations and criticism 

_____

The greatest, 

The legends,

The saints 

The rugged,

All went through their ups & downs

______

We are here;

Celebrating them

Don’t ever think they were super humans 

_____

What set them apart from those 

Who throw in the towel easily ?

____

The will to pursue; feet bruised

The drive to march on; heart bleeding 

Their relentless soul, through the fire,

And the crashing waves 

_____

Don’t give up, my dear

Don’t give up fighting

You’re not far from breakthrough

Death may taste good,

But living; impacting lives

Is more rewarding.

In the grave, there is no Living

______

So, live 

Live like 

It’s all you know to do well

Live, my friend

Live.

____

If you stand

In the end you will smile.

_______
