Death is a curious creature
That acts of its own free-will.
Death slips into peoples' lives,
Unknown until they are ripped away prematurely.
Death sometimes denies people
The right to "nope" out of life early.
Other times, Death agrees to the terms of agreement
And the people make their timely departures.
Only Death can answer the question
Of whether there is life after death
Or only a black abyss.
Death is a secretive being
Who is the most trusted person.
Death helps people take their secrets to the grave.
Many interview Death,
But none return to tell the tale.
