The truth is

The truth I, she shouted, in the darkness, in dread

The truth is we die, we all die–That’s the truth

There is no other certainty… Death is the certainty

But if we die, she said aloud, with a snort of involuntary recognition,


To die, we all have to live first. First we are alive, that’s the truth

The truth is we all live, we all live before we die, she laughed, giggled really

The truth is we’re alive and the fear is of dying of death

Dying young, dying old, Dying before we are ready, before our time


The truth is we live first and fear the last, and sometimes  Just sometimes,

the truth is we only see the end and don’t live at all


Life is for living, that’s the truth, death will come on its own and soon enough
