The Flower

Updated on January 11, 2012

Life and Death

Something happened and now its over

As we laid

in the grass.

Everything was fine, all green and clover

I think I missed it

when it went by, so fast.

I saw it and I keep looking for it

but now it's past.

Am I afraid of death, I know it not

will the moment be quick or a tiny spot.

What is life, complicated and slow,

or simple and still, does anyone know?

Alas, poor yorick, you are gone

Soon we will all be singing that song

      i really like this. everyone questions it. life and death and the meaning between the two, and how it all ends..I liked the shakespeare reference though i had to google it to see what it meant lol.
