Death Poetry: The World Is Chaos

Updated on June 3, 2013

How can we know the value of life
Without experiencing death
How can we cherish our loved ones
Without knowing the pain of losing them

The world is chaos
But still we strive to make sense of it all
Like why evil men rise
And good men fall

Maybe life isn't about
Holding on for as long as you can
Maybe it's about letting go
And surrendering to a higher plan

The more we try to reach
And grasp for immortality
The more we lose our soul
And our spiritual vitality

God's will is not for us to question
When we don't understand why
It's for us to accept the bad with the good
Even when the bad makes us cry

      It really is. I know are survival instincts make us reach for every second of life, but I believe that as long as you live life to the fullest then death should not be feared.

      Letting go is often harder than hanging on.

      Sometimes letting go is the strongest thing we can do.

      Very awesome and profound. Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.,
