The Inevitable Circle by StormSage

I have tried all my life
to comprehend the meaning of death;
to understand the circle we travel.
After life, what is there left?

And strangely now that I am confronted
with death, so close to home;
it has brought with it an inner calm,
replacing my fear of the unknown.

Death is something we can not change -
life, must be time well spent,
but there will come a time when death has you in its sight
and its gaze will not relent.

Inevitable is the circle of life
it is a force even human gods can not control.
Ultimately, death may conclude all life,
yet it can never take the soul.
