Death, It’s a Thing

So yeah
Death is a thing
and yeah
It sucks
But also
It happens
To everyone
At some point.
 
So why worry
It’s beyond
your control
People are born
People age
And people die.
 
And yeah
It’s sad
You’ll mourn
You’ll cry
You’ll weep
Tears of joy
At the life
they had
and no longer
have.
 
My advice?
Cry
Cry tears of sadness
of joy
of pain
of courage
it doesn’t matter
but cry
Because when you cry
Your tears leech from
other emotions
tears of sadness
leech from joy
joy from pain
pain from courage
It brings up
other emotions
Painful emotions
We wish we didn’t have.
 
So yeah
Death is a thing
But when I die,
I’ll have lived
knowing that my life
was important
If not to anyone
but myself.
