Life Comes For Us All

Just like death

Life comes for us all

And soon

The permanence of death

Becomes favourable in comparison

To the uncertain nature of life

About Life Comes For Us All:

It’s the funniest thing (funny odd not funny haha) but this poem randomly came to me when I was settling down to take a nap. Much like babies and the elderly, I like naps and get cranky if I don’t take one. But this poem was intent on scaring away any sleep I looked forward to. I just had to write it down before I forgot it and it was lost forever in the sea of words in my brain.

What inspired “Life Comes For Us All”? Your guess is as good as mine. I guess I have just been thinking about mortality a lot more these days. And by these days I mean for like the last two years lol. And sometimes when life get really tough, you think, maybe death isn’t so bad after all. Or maybe that’s just me lol. If so, sorry for being a bummer today but I am not in the best of moods right now. That’s what happens when I don’t get to take a nap!

  1. The poem is a bit dark, Pooja. It has me thinking about Jesus and salvation. ❤️🙏🏻

    1. Yeah, I think it got quite dark but that’s good that it made you think about that 🙏🙏

      1. ❤️❤️❤️

  2. it does…..that the importance of living life to the fullest…and making sure we tell those that are important to us know that….how many wish those final words were different, never go to bed angry, never let someone leave or never leave without those words, love you….

    1. Absolutely. I think the fact that life is so uncertain is why we need to focus on the moment when happy moments are happening.

  3. I’ve heard people in more recent times say at their funeral do not cry for them but rather celebrate their life. I think it’s an interesting way to look at death and dying. Personally I just want the eternal peace that comes with death 😅

    1. Lol I think it’s the same for me too 😅 Yeah, I think a celebration of life is interesting and it would be a nice way to remember the good memories.

  4. The first thought that comes to my mind is that life is short. The older you get, the more you realize just how short it is because the speed of life accelerates the older you get.

    1. That’s so true. When you’re young you never really think about it. But as you get older you realise just how little time you have in life.

      1. Yes. As a child, I used to think a month is very long. As an adult, I realize that a decade is very short.

        1. It’s the same for me. As a child all we want to do is grow up but when we grow up we realise how fast life goes by.

          1. Yes. It’s better to be a child and not grow up. Best way to freeze time. LOL

            1. Lol, agreed.

  5. Nice poem. Makes you think about how precious life is, how much we should enjoy every moment no matter what, and it also makes you think about eternal rest from a cold cruel world and mean people. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, absolutely. Life is so uncertain and changes so fast. We should live our best lives while we can. And yes, peace after death is sometimes not the worst. Thanks and have a great weekend too.

  6. Nice poem.
    I agree life and death is for all, the thing that makes death burdensome is the way in which it comes and it’s timing. As much us we know that we shall all die some day, we are not fully prepared when it happens.

    1. Thanks so much. Yes, I agree. Rather than death itself, the preparation and anxiety is what’s more difficult.

  7. Life and death consist of Matter *&* Energy comprise all human beings and all elements that comprise the earth and let people determind which they perfer over the other due to their experiences and observations with Nature and Life, this masterpice poem of thoughts, actions, and reactions of life presents complex questions and answers that could manifest a book and materialze situations and circumstances that maybe one person, group, or organization couldn’t solve. This poem will cause some to cry, some to think, and otthers to fear and at the same time hope their is a God and that mankind does not have the power to treat another evil and wrong!

    1. Yes, I think of it as “energy” too. Both life and death are fascinating. The poem is dark but my intent was to provoke readers to think more deeply rather than become pessimistic.

      1. Pooja G you just manifest a post that israre and book material!

        1. Thank you, really appreciate that compliment.

          1. Your deserved the compliment, because you earned that compliment!

  8. Great poem. It really makes me think.

    I think I may do a blog on this. But this is it in a nutshell.

    We are matter, which is also energy, but there could be an energy that arises from the matter that is separate.

    The first law of thermodynamics suggests that energy is transformed from one state to another and is always conserved.

    Our physical matter then transforms into various forms of other
    physical matter and eventually transforms into a different type of matter again.

    The separate energy (soul?) is already in a pure energy state, so maybe it is transformed into another energy type we do not understand yet.

    I imagine any mental or emotional issues in this life (on the soul level) would carry over to that energy transformation. The best thing we can do is to correct the energy vibration now while we have some control over it.

    So, bottom line: more naps, but not too long, or we may find ourselves in that next energy transformation sooner than we think and still have the same issues. 😉

    1. Thanks so much. I’m glad it made you think, that’s what I hoped would happen.

      I think of it very similarly. Haha true, we should do what we need to before it all starts all over again in the next energy transformation 😅

  9. I love it! It’s so succinct but incredibly relatable. I did my final paper (a poem analysis) last term on Anne Sexton’s poem Wanting to Die. Her poem made me think of the scene in Girl, Interrupted where Winona Ryder is talking about how suicidal ideation becomes so normal once you’ve thought of it. I think about that movie, and that scene, a lot.

    1. Mr. Joseph Gidden says he may do a blog on this subject and I agreebecause Ms Pooja G has presented a novel issue here that is book material and congrats and honor to her huge talent. And Mr. Gidden speaks of the *Soul* in her blog which may be the key to more wisdom.knowledge, and understanding of the subject matter that would be medicine to heal. Where is the *Soul* located is another key to discuss within the subject matter.

    2. I remember watching Girl, Interrupted as a teenager and that really resonated with me. I thought about it a lot too mainly because that was when my depression was at its worst.

  10. Well you better get your nap!
    Sleep well
    And sleep sufficiently.

    Let’s talk about life next time 😃

    1. Haha thanks, I started taking Ashwaganda btw and it helps a lot with my sleep.

      1. Oh, Sometimes you do listen 🥺

        I will suggest something more than

        1. Of course, emphasis on the sometimes lol.

          Thanks, I always appreciate your suggestions 😊

    1. Thanks so much.

  11. Since I believe in fate/ destiny, I think this poem is spot on. We are meant to be born and are granted a lifespan. What we do with it is our choice.

    1. I feel the same way. Thank you.

      1. You’re always welcome

  12. either or, this life vs death… is a given… though in between we must live too 😉

    always lovely, Pooja (this scary thoughts of yours lol😋)

    1. Yes, in between life and death is our choice and how we choose to live.

      Haha, thanks 🤗💕

      1. most welcome 🤍🤗

  13. Ooh I do love a good nap 😴💕🙏

    1. I’m the same way, I can never resist a nap 😴🛌

  14. Expressed well, thanks.

    1. Thanks so much.

  15. Deeply introspective.

    1. Thank you so much.

  16. I nearly drowned once and I remember thinking that it would be so peaceful to stop struggling and slip under the waves.

    Your poem reminded me.

    1. Wow, that’s a crazy experience.

  17. I enjoyed your poem but I must admit I don’t think of death and dying too much these days. I had enough of it when I was so depressed in 2018-2020. I know it will come but prefer to think of living as a gift that I get to unpack every morning and see where it takes me.

    It is wonderful over here in Newfoundland! We had our first snowfall the other day, tho it didn’t stay. I am looking forward to going out and playing in the snow! Such simple pleasures that give me such joy these days!! Every positive thing I can find is how I live my day!

    1. Thank you. That’s great, I think the less we think of death the better. And I’m glad you’re in a better place now.

      Newfoundland sounds so lovely and yay for the snow!

  18.     I’ve been noticing the deaths of famous people. The males hover around 80 in the non-drug abuser category. A few in their 90’s have always been happy and ignorant and like everybody or are very talented. Some are theoretically old but lost their memory and mind so senile old doesn’t count for living consciously. It doesn’t make sense to think we came into conscious existence from nowhere and go back into a non-existence that is nowhere. Whatever the soul is, it can not be matter or energy or a mathematical artifact of quantum physics. The physical body is full of systems of biological machines that run on biochemical reactions and ion movements that orchestrate forces. Consciousness can not be found anywhere in these matter-energy systems.
        Anyway, as I meant to say, I’m 75 without accomplishments with probably 5 years left to succeed at something. I am clueless. My father died at 72 from an unknown cancer. He was always angry and never happy. My Mother was clueless and died at 97 except that 5 years were in diminished capacity.
        I’ve always thought it would have been better if I had been hit by a truck and died when I graduated high school because I would have thought I was about to succeed at college and have lots of friends. Or I might have been better off having been drafted into the Vietnam War and killed in battle — it would have been a more noble life. Instead I got college deferments… it’s a long story.

    1. Unfortunately, we all have many regrets in life and feel like we have wasted our lives. Life is complicated. That’s exactly why I feel that sometimes death would be easier.

  19. Excellent poem, Pooja. Yes, it is on the dark side but is it also realistic.

    1. Thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed the poem. I think poetry brings out a lot of real stuff for many of us.

      1. You are welcome, Pooja, and I agree. Poetry is a great to release our feelings.💕

  20. Life does come to us all. We should cherish it. 🤣🙃😎

    1. Haha absolutely! 😅

  21. Yes, death is guaranteed

    1. It’s the one guarantee in life.

  22. I agree with you. I think living is harder than death. Death is inevitable and like your poem said life has an uncertain nature. I believe death will be easier because of its certainty

    1. I’m glad you understand what I tried to portray in the poem. I feel that way too. Because of its certainty we are at least somewhat prepared for death but we are never truly prepared for life since it changes so often.

  23. Life here is not a permanent situation. I long for the days when I can spend them with the Lord. There is, however, much work to be done here first. I will do that and look forward to the day when I can go home!

    1. Yes, we must live before we get to that point!

  24. Interesting it came after your fav actors death.. kind of right?
    death comes life comes, thought it interesting the flip flop of order because no one knows truly whats on the other side. Life is quite a ride. Death I’m not sure of as i haven’t experienced a near death or death that I remember. Definitely an illusion.

    1. Yeah, I think death has been on my life more after reading about Matthew Perry’s life and death.

      1. I imagine. I’ve been dreaming of my friends that have died lately. I’m like what do you want me to know. what do I need to know. hmmm 💕

        1. Yeah, they’re usually trying to say something. Hopefully you’ll figure out what 💖

          1. hmmmmmm I’m certain of it💕

  25. Hello 👋 goodnight.

  26. Yes. I think about this a lot of the time. Beautifully written 💕

    1. Thank you and glad it was relatable 💖

  27. Hah! Thinking of something right went I’m settling down for a rare afternoon snooze is always a sign I won’t be resting!

    1. Lol, absolutely!

      1. 😵‍💫

  28. does it or grocery shopping with pope st son tom. oh oh oh no!

    1. Not grocery shopping!

      1. yes a smash hit.

  29. Naps are restorative. Good for you! Good to keep a notepad and pen nearby, too, for those poetic inspirations. ✨

    1. Thanks so much! I do that too, when inspiration hits you just gotta write it down no matter what ✍

      1. You are welcome! I should have followed my own advice last night. Needed a notepad at 3 am this morning. Fortunately, my thoughts stayed with me long enough to find one. 😁✍🏻

        1. Oh good, glad you didn’t forget it 😀

          1. Essential! 📝

  30. Take a nap girlie! You will feel so good.

    1. I plan to today!

  31. Love it 🙂

    1. Thank you 😊

  32. I like this one. I’ve thought lately that the more comfortable one gets with mortality, the easier life can feel. It’s one big thing off the list to be anxious about and it helps a person to maintain perspective in the interim.

    1. Thank you. You’re right. Death is inevitable and fearing our mortality doesn’t help us. We need to be comfortable with it so that we can live our best lives while we can.

  33. Poem reminds me to enjoy life. It’s fleeting. 💙🙏

    1. Thanks and yes that’s absolutely it. We need to live while we can 💖

  34. I loved the poem. I thought it was very moving and profound. I especially liked the comparison of the uncertainty of life to the permanence of death. It made me think about how we should cherish every moment and make the most of our opportunities.

    As for my thoughts on life and death, I believe that they are both part of a natural cycle that we cannot fully understand. I hope I get peace and happiness when I die. I also think that life is a precious gift that we should respect and appreciate.

    My day has been good, thank you for asking. I showered, I cooked, I exercised. I enjoyed reading your blog and learning more about your perspective. You have a very creative and expressive way of writing. I hope you keep sharing your poems and thoughts with us.

    How about you? How has your day been?

    1. Thank you so much. Yes, life is so uncertain we should take advantage of it while we can.

      Yes, they are all a part of our life. Death is the natural next step.

      I’m glad you had a good day and that you enjoyed the post. I absolutely will be sharing poetry each week.

      I’m good but unfortunately have the flu, hopefully I’ll be fine soon.

      1. I hope you get well soon.

        1. Thanks, I’m sure I will.
