I write what I feel…

Life and Death


Life and Death

Life and Death are conceived with us
And accompany us through birth.
Life is the stronger of the two,
But Death slowly sucks her strength away
Until he is victorious.

The positive and the negative
Are usually in balance
Until, with age, a flaw appears
When Death, made bold by Life’s decline,
Intensifies his hold.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
