Beautiful yet Dreadful


The sweetness short lingered and enjoyed
The dreadful aftermath - 
Long suffered and happiness forfeit
The ultimate - undertaker ordained

Such inexpressible sufferings
Staring at the life buzzing before their eyes 
So unsympathetic of theirs
When they are fading so steadily out of this life

Unregulated sweetness and enjoyment
Uncontrolled poverty and languish
The accurate recipe 
For absolute and definite doom

Days painfully mature into weeks
Onto the bones the flesh hastily shrinks 
Unto them the painful reality dawns
Their health and life so much at loss

Five minutes of pleasure
Is what they traded their indefinite mortality for
Now still so young 
Yet a coffin they are ready own

Power over death we have not
Yet how immense our power to summon it is
Since of the shortcuts to it you are already informed
You are at liberty from that road to desist or not

    What a creative and thoughful piece. Sometimes certain ' if, why me, and how could avoid if we stop one minute to think. One single minute of our life can leave impact on us for the rest of our lives. I enjoy every single stanza of this poem. So far one of the best poem i have red in weeks. Very well done.
