To Live Is To Die

To Live Is To Die

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

 

Pine seeds planted around the world

Are filled with the DNA

Of those having long since bloomed

And pollinated the Earth in their own way,

No matter if it was a little or a lot

They all germinated with this planet.

 

What they are now

Sooner or later we will be

When Nature makes the call

To God’s will.

 

Life is like a hurricane,

Fast and hectic,

But death is the tornado,

Moving things around

And changing the landscape of the future.

 

In the scheme of things

The inevitable is inevitable,

Until that day comes

Our purpose is to be the stem

That produces all the flowers it can

To make the Garden of Eden

Beautiful again.

 

For to live is to die,

To die is to go to heaven,

To go to heaven is to live eternally

In this world.

Thank you for the wonderful review and sharing your insight.
I really enjoyed this poem. It's a perspective that i've never seen life as before. When I saw the title I thought of something depressing but this poem has a whole different way to describe what life is.

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
