Unnatural Death

They say

That death is a part of life,

the most natural end

for all of us.

But if this natural end

occurs unnaturally,

is it natural?


I came that you might have life.

Death is unnatural

in every way,

at any time.

We are supposed to live

without disease knawing

or the reaper knocking.

The thief comes to kill.

We are supposed to live,


That is natural.

So you know,

it’s okay to cry,

to hurt,

to rage,

at the unnaturalness of death.
