SLAVES

Low age in some families
so no one will live much longer
than father did

This is abs nonsense
in some families
father died at 53
son lived a bit more
to 59

in many cases
I have seen
pop went at 70
sons daughters last born
crossed passed 83
so where lies your foolish
theory

In another case
suicide ran in families
tales only
some did self kill
others were murdered
then to fear instill

what of genes

those who were bolder
lived longer
self destruction is no thrill

live as long as you will
keep healthy and active till
the end finally does will

believe not in foolish things
each one of us
is an entity only
each one individually

hence death will
as it always did
remain a mystery

when will your heart fail or brain collapse or stomach perhaps
no doc knows it
so live till you live
I have crossed 80

you are
till you are
enjoy life like a Golden star
loneliest distant
Pole Star

It is sad when people die too young. And pets too. My beloved cat died recently aged only 8.
