Scarred

worryWill I die a painful death

Or will I die a peaceful one

Death is certain

This, I know

But will I die a painful death

Or will I die a peaceful one.

 

 

Will I get run over by a moving train

Or will I die in my sleep

Will I get crushed by a site crane

Or will I drown as I swim

 

Will I get hit by a bus

Driven by a man with a drink

Or will I get shot in the head

By a lunatic with Al Qaeda link

 

Will I die of a sickness without cure

Or will I die of a broken heart

Will I die in a collapsed building

Or will I die in a plane crash

 

Will I die drowning in wealth

As I choke on Newton’s apple

Or will I die atop wretchedness

As I scramble for Lazarus’ crumbs

 

Will I die from electrocution

My body, still like a man at peace

Or will I die from gas explosion

My body, well, there’s no peace in this

 

Will I die a painful death

Or will I die a peaceful one

Death is certain

This, I know

But will I die a painful death

Or will I die a peaceful one.

  1. Death is inevitable, unfortunately. We can’t all be Enoch or Elijah.
    I’ll like my departure peaceful, or at least without much fuss.
    I’d like it not to be a suprise.
    I don’t wanna wake up in the afterlife looking befuddled.
