Death, a poem written by Massayan Favor Kollie at
Oluwatoyin Adedokun



written by: Massayan Favor Kollie



Death meets you unaware;
He catches you unprepared and
He greets you anywhere

He comes with terror of darkness;
He appears in a gown of horror and blackness;
He locks us up in cages of sadness

Yet, he’s coming for everybody;
Not somebody,
But anybody

Death has no mercy;
His burdens are heavy and
Still, he’s in a hurry to weary another soul

But he takes the body, not the spirit;
He takes the physical, not the legacy;
He takes the man, not the history
