Then and Now

Once there was a time (of course, not so long), I was, in body and mind, not so strong; Any death, as though it's my own, scared me, Mishaps and blood I couldn't dare to see...! Then, when I saw while slowly growing up, Kith and kin from the cup of death did sup; Though, sorrow brim-filled, for days I cried, wept, The thickness turned like snow by soft sun swept...! Money and mundane luxuries, further, Pulled me far from realities, rather; Death seems to me now as though a routine, Like drinking tea or normal morning clean...!!! I philosophize death, theologize, Moralize today; spiritualize; Exhibit explicit crocodile tears, Isn't my conscience, yet, simply on airs...? 03 January 2023 Then and now Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Unseeking Seeker

Well done, Chris. I had problems writing a decent poem for this theme. I am never sure how to write for unseeking seeker!

We can philosophize about death in our youth but the true understanding and wisdom comes later. Death nipping at heels, yet another mind boggling venture. Still death seems unnatural and points to God. I like this one.
