A Sonnet on Death

Life’s full of unpredictabilities,
For sunrise seldom happens everyday.
But inspite of all those uncertainties,
There is “I” that will surely come your way.

"I" have been given many creepy names:
A reaper with sickle, reaps man instead,
A state where sinners thrusted into flames –
Descriptions that filled every man with dread!

Listen! For "I" have something to declare,
"I" come to those who, even alive, yet
Lives like dead, for they forgotten to dare
Do things they must, that later they regret.

So here "I" am, telling you face to face,
Act now or else it is you "I" will chase.
