Death In My Wake

   
   
Come what may, Death ? i will never fear*  
Dead before even born in the skin i wear  
Insensible to what weather cold or heat, i bear  
Have seen more sleet and fire, " by words i swear !! "  
   
From the tender age of my fingers i have seen  
To live or to die, in this world, its only has-been  
They conquered the world shielded with iron skin  
Then left alone, as if they did never live or win  
   
And so, i will take life as it comes with its flow  
Tide with the motion and ocean whether fast or slow  
Send a smile to whoever familiar either or not know  
Then say to these passing world in words '' Adieu ''  
   
I have lived here seen sweet and bitter and more  
It's time i should leave to exist in another core  
And behind my words will stand green like evergreen trees  
To give shade and shelter to birds for another poet after me
