Is it only happening this side?
I wonder if you guys are witnessing these predicaments,
People are dying all over,
Both from the old buddies and the new ones,
Old and young.
Am afraid to inquire about someone I haven’t seen for a while,
Because the answer has been constant for a while now,
“Oh, that person, they died few days/ months ago”
Same applies when you visit your folks after a few months,
That neighbor you used to chat with,
Is no more, or that new person who moved in,
They passed away the other day,
It’s like death has decided to wipe almost everyone out,
Leaving so many question unanswered,
Going away with all the talents and awesome human beings,
