Darkness comes swiftly as the light doth fade.
All comes to this, so why be afraid?
Reward for the dues we so dearly have paid?
Knowledge we keep or a clean slate is made? 
Now in this moment as we have all prayed.
Envision infinity, our cards we have played.
So, close your eyes as darkness pervades.
Soon it is over, death won’t be delayed.

Acrostic, monorhyme

    Very profound. It is filled with darkness that send shiver up my spine. It reminded me of one one my poem. It is called zombie. You must be going through so much drama, and death came nocking at your door, do you open it or not. that is the question. I hope you are o.k. Love. Sophia. I will pray for you Russell. Bye
