Death Poetry: When Death Comes Knocking

Updated on June 6, 2013

I see you walking outside my window

Only five small steps separates your from knocking on my door

But what can I do

You are coming for your due

Now only four steps remaining till you come knocking on my door

I've been to church

Prayed for God to have mercy on my soul

Told my family I love them today

Now only three steps till you come knocking on my door

I think about all the things I could have done better.

But what's the point now of keeping score

When death comes a knocking

And only two more steps till he's knocking on my door

I'm begging and pleading now

Please Death just give me a little more

I need some time to set things right

Please Death don't come knocking on my door




Death's knocking on my door

I turn the knob to let him in

Crash! My body hits the floor .

      I tried to make this one scary enough to motivate people to make the right moves now instead of regretting it later.

      What a vivid poem! A little scary but try. You have to let him in when he comes. If it's your time there is nothing you can really do about it but to set things straight before hand.
