Aaliyah Gisele

Like airplanes, time is flying,
Like roaches, people keep dying,
Like a baby, I'm always crying.

  • Comment from author about the poem: This means a lot to me, more than my other poems. Because time is going by fast and life itself, is going by way too fast, and in that saying, I wish that time and life could slow down, and wait for me. And people keep dying. Everyday, I wake up and I hear about a death of a person I don't even know, or someone that could have been related to me. People just keep leaving this world. The more deaths, the more people get scared, scared to even step foot out of their door.

    It's very short and that's how I feel


    Birth ~ Life ~ Death LIYAH are a part of the natural cycle. But take heart ! Even though 150,000 people DIE every day ~ 360,000 new babies are BORN each day which is more than double. You know and I know we can't live for ever and Scientists have calculated that none of us can survive for more than about 125 years. Potentially you could live for more than 100 years ~ so never be afraid of going out ! Enjoy each day ~ dry your years and be HAPPY ! Your Friend BRIAN

      People died Sunday by getting killed, SHOT ! How is THAT a good thing ???

        That is an interesting question LIYAH ~ Of the 150,000 people die every day some are only a few hours old ~ soem are over 100 ~ some die peacefully of old age and natural causes ~ some are murdered ~ some die in accidents ~ some take their own lives suicide. Each death is a tragedy for their Friends and Families but we all have to die sometime. Death is always sad but Death is a natural thing a is birth. If we lived for ever the Earth would be even more overcrowded than it is now. Death is never a good thing and being shot or in an accident or committing suicide is much worse than dying naturally and without too much pain at an age of 80+ Death of children is always much sadder than death of the elderly (80+). In 1990 13 million children under 5 died in 2013 it was only 6.5 million ~ only half the number. Because World Health is getting better this number of under 5 deaths will decrease. I hope this helps ~ Yours BRIAN
