Mortality For Us

Mortality for us is a fact and fact does not lie
For whatever you achieve in life you eventually must die
Death brings an end to worry and fear and self doubt
One does have to wonder what is life about
Like all other life forms we are mortals why otherwise pretend
And this life journey we are on does have an end
It is only the fear of death that we do fear
To most people this must be obviously clear
The longest lived human life in time not a long span
On an average a few years more for a woman than it is for a man
The oldest person i ever met of years was one hundred and four
Perhaps one of her age i will meet never more
A few years ago her life's journey came to an end
We are born as mortals why otherwise pretend.
