I’m lowered into the ground
Returning to ashes and dirt
In the casket’s confines
Oblivion bound
Consumed by the earth

Flowers adorn mourner’s hands
A funeral procession in bloom
An ironic parade
Life eternal interred,
Immortality’s doom

Returning to ashes and dirt
Dreading the day since forever

Time has digested my flesh
Irrevocably drained it of youth
I anticipate death
The shadows in my path
Reflect mortal truths

Death on my mind since day one
Tomorrow all shrouded in gloom
With fear I remain
Smothering darkness
Invading my room

The world is a tomb
And we are all dead
From cradle to grave like the blind we are led
Nearing our time with every breath
In this world our tomb
We all look like death

Ashen with grief
Shades of death an abhorrent motif
No hope to be found in religious beliefs
My face ashen with grief
