A simple four letter word
With so much meaning.
From the weaning of a child
To the elder whom within this child sleeps.
So loving, so caring, so hated, so debated over.

To accept is simplicity, knowledge.
To waste is just simply a collage of fears and doubts.
An ancient question with no set answer,
Only death to succeed.

Some say the only cure for life is death.
Many disagree; enough to keep a wavering balance.
Who is to say that the others are wrong?
