Grim reaper's feelings

Grim reaper's feelings

A Poem by Harley (arbiter)
"

Because we all have feelings right?

"

Why do people fear me?  

  For it is not I who brings the end of lives. 

 I am only a messenger and the only messenger I am.  

 A taxi to the other sides.

  I did not ask for this job.  

 People say I did but those are lies.

  But I have accepted that I am the one there

  When someone dies.

I just thought.... What would it be like to be death. People come on. I want to know what you thought about it. At least say something

This is a brilliant poem, and it brings up a really good point. A whole nother side to something that we have thought of as bad or evil for our entire lives. This flow worked really well, and I really like how straight-to-the-point it was. The meaning was clear, and you got it across in very few words. Good for you.

I liked it, a very different perspective. One, I regret to admit, that I would not have thought of. You portrayed it excellently, keep up the good work.

Thanks :)
Wow, this is pretty awesome. When people think of death they have this image that he is the person who cause death and furthermore enjoys it. It's great how you could picture him as a guy who ended up in a job he didn't even want. Really brought a whole new light onto this subject. Great write man :)

hahaha, I no longer fear the reaper didn't know he had feelings. I think this is a really cool write. It leaves the reader thinken, at least that's how it left me. Does the reaper walk around saying "I don't wanna take your spirit but it's my job" haha again cool write.

It's a good point, BUT it wasn't very well written. No rhyming pattern (I know it doesn't have to have one, but it
s always nice to have one), the flow was meh, and the point wasn't all that well expressed
