Immortality--By Vincent Van Ross--India


Who can
Stake claim
To immortality
On earth?

The moments
I have stolen
The angel of death
Make up
The precious span
Of my entire life
On earth!

  1. Some say that is the only way to live that until we get where we are not afraid to die do we truly live but I am not so sure about that. You have expressed that concept very well. Sara
