Death and Deterioration

Age seems to drag us out
To the point of humiliation
As we are degraded to infancy.

Our bodies deteriorate,
Our minds drift back to a
Time with no worries.

They claim death is suppose
To be a beautiful thing,
But how can it be
When you suffer so much?

The pain, the agony,
The affliction, the grief.
The book of life ends
With a tragic ending.

Slumber finally hits us.
