The beginning of a new life.

The beginning of a new life.

A Poem by andrew mitchell

When death felt cheated
life was immortal.
No longer would
life reach an end.
The wand of time
waved goodbye
in acknowledgement.
The spell was cast
the legacy broken,
a beginning with
no end was born.

Beautiful writing. I wish I can write the same poem. But now, I am busy with my college assignments and I don’t have time for a hobby. Therefore, I buy assignments online on https://uk.edubirdie.com/buy-assignment-online and professional writers do it quickly and efficiently.

Andrew... have you seen the movie "Meet Joe Black" ?
We can speculate ... and be curious... which will be
like seeing a Movie where we are the Leading Actor.
I feel our Spirit will be in a holding pattern... and will go to someone
who perhaps wants to have a Medical Career, since my
body is experimenting with ideas as I age and finds our
mind and capabilities may be a challenge for someone else. truly, Pat
Recycling never ends. truly, Pat

The thought of an eternal life terrifies me, but it is a good idea to put it into words. Nice piece of work.

Boy, how many would be healed of diseases, cancers, and the like huh? It really is an amazing thought to put to words. Nice one, andrew.

Oh crap and here I've been spending all of my money thinking I wouldn't make it to 60... anybody hiring? gonna need a second job! Just as long as it isn't death's job, talk about being unpopular... death never gets invited to any of the good parties! I don't have many friends as it is:) Seriously the concept of immortality is a scary one for me

Eternal life, what a thought. You've seen it all, done it all. I say no thanks as well Andrew. How exhausting would that be :))

Even an extension would be nice J.
Hard to wrap the mind around the concept of 'eternal life' and yet, that is the promise isn't it.
Much like retirement I suppose.

haha thanks Ted
Your poem brings to mind how each person has a different mental image of what living & dying looks like. I prefer your take, that life goes on & on, into whatever new possibilities we cannot yet fathom! *smile* This is nicely thought-provoking (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
