Reviews for death and such
Menginpeh chapter 1 . 5/31/2014
I liked it. :)
Reminded me of another poem I read this week -
Don't know who wrote it, but thought you might possibly like it.
Sometime, when you're feeling important;
Sometime, when your ego's in bloom;
Sometime, when you take it for granted
You're the best qualified in the room;

Sometime, when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole;
Just follow this simple instruction
And see how it humbles your soul.

Take a bucket and fill it with water.
Put your hand in it up to the wrist.
Pull it out and the hole that's remaining
Is a measure of how you'll be missed.

You may splash all you please when you enter;
You can stir up the water galore
But stop, and you'll find in a minute,
That it looks quite the same as before.

The moral in this quaint example
Is do in God's strength what you can;
Be faithful in all things, but remember,
There is no indispensable man.
The Beautiful Filth chapter 1 . 5/12/2014
Not exactly sure if the last line means that the mourners stop crying and carry on living as usual (and hence dropping the grieving facade), but lovely poem.
