COUNTDOWN TO DEATH

Countdown to Death
 
10 is for When, when will that day come,
The day I go to Heaven to meet my dad and mum.
9 is for Mine, my life to account for and not complain,
My many bad deeds and broken promises to explain.
8 is for the Pearly Gate, will it open to let me in?
I will have to see if I get to meet my kith and kin.
7 is for my place in Heaven, I hope I have one there,
A fluffy cloud of my own, to stay without a care.
6 is for my Pics, a huge collection to go through,
To find the perfect photo in remembrance to view.
5 is for no longer Alive, no breath left to take,
I hope I didn't die in pain, please, for God's sake.
4 is for Gore, I hope I won't be full of blood and cuts,
Or be mangled and wounded showing loads of guts.
3 is for Free, my soul is free to flee and roam,
Released from my earthly body in search of my Eternal home.
2 is for all of You, please think of me whenever you can,
That's all I ask, and I will be a happy and contented man.
1 is for Done, my life is over for sure you see,
The Countdown is done, the Countdown to Death for me.

Many find the idea confronting, but making peace with the fact of mortality is a powerfully emancipating step.
