Life, Death and Inbetween


“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.”
Isaac Asimov

Life is like a dream

It can be good or bad

It can be happy or sad

Death is like a dream

Never ending

And unforgiving

In between is like a dream

But still remains unseen

As experiences of your being

Life may be pleasant

Death may be peaceful

No shows won’t know

In between may be troublesome

But, isn’t it what you make it?

Wise up and don’t forsake it
