Is there at the moment of conception
As a child you may be unaware of Its existence
Until the loss of a loved one
Then you begin to question
What is Death?
Who does it take? When? Why?
It becomes a game of Dare
Life in the Fast Lane
How far can you go? How fast?
Will It catch you?
You may feel that you’ve cheated It
You settle into comfort, friends, family
But, one day you notice time going by so fast
And you feel Its icy grip
There in the shadows, waiting
Until the day you close your eyes
