The Final Countdown


We are born,

We are raised,

Living just to count our days.


All we have known,

The terminal disease of death,

We are all shown.

    • It is somewhat of a juxtaposition that the minute we are born our time begins to tick down. I coupled that with the Doomsday Clock as more of a big picture view.

      The piece wasn’t meant to be negative or portray life as downtrodden or worthless. I was thinking about Edgar Allan Poe when I wrote this.


      • Oh no, I definitely didn’t take it negatively! There’s a sense of truth to it, we are born to die essentially!
