Death is an unfortunate event,
It is something that we can rarely ever prevent.
Death is something we wish did not exist,
It adds people to our dearly departed list.

Thanks to it,
Many shining stars are lost.
Death will take lives,
No matter what the cost.

It can be caused by drugs and alcohol,
And yet so many are ready and willing to take the fall.
It can be caused by sickness or knives,
Death has caused way too many lives.

It constantly dwells amongst us still,
It's main purpose?
Obviously to kill.
