THEY DONT DIE.
How much do people fear death?
Well, I a approximate it at 99%
For nobody is ever willing to die
Neither the young nor the old
Though death still remains a mystery.

And what happens when they die?
Where do they go when they die?
How do they feel when they are dead?
Do they feel anything at all?
No, nobody is aware of all this, for death is a mystery.

But why should we refer to it as death
If we dont understand a thing about it?
Why cant we just say it is eternal sleep
For it leads to sleep_unending
Which not wooden beds but the soil can accommodate.

Do human beings really die?
No, I dont believe in death
For, I hear, there is life after the eternal sleep
Meaning that they only shift into another world
Where they live lives similar to, but prestigious than the earthly.
