It

Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
run headlong into it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
try to run away from it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
simply sit and wait for it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
busy themselves trying to ignore it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
simply resign themselves to it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
obsess over it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
exercise and gobble supplements to delay it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
sit and simply ponder it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
create heaven to deny it.
Some, so afraid of the inevitable,
create hell for all others to live in it.
Maybe St. Paul was the only one
not afraid of it.
Had he really transcended his fear of it
or did he create a metaphorical battle
between immortal life and it
just to cope with it?
Maybe, it was just his figurative
way of dealing with it.
All, so afraid of the inevitable,
do, in a variety of ways,
approach it.
All, so afraid of the inevitable,
do experience it.
And they all have to pay taxes
until it.
