Death is Life

Never knowing anything besides death
The realization after ecstasy
This too will end

Coming to grips with death
Is a painful process
Knowing life often is

The wisdom that guides me after that
Priceless beyond measure

Allowing me to accept life
With newfound capacity

Light becomes dark and dark becomes light

Amidst the fight

Until realizing
Death is life
