Poem: Death Isn’t Abstract

Death Isn’t Abstract - By Thai Sheridan

Death isn’t

an abstract event

Making it abstract intellectual

a belief or other worldly

protects you from deep grief

To make peace with death

you need to make

peace with grief

It requires tremendous

inner strength to dwell deeply

inside the loss of those

you dearly love

It requires

the same strength

to dwell deeply

inside the knowledge

that you will lose

your precious life

You may tend to avoid

accepting the biggest truth

about living which is

that everything dies

Deep acceptance will

change you forever

From the ever soothing collections of poems by Thai Sheridan “Relax you’re going to die”. See more books and poetry in the deyja library
