In this awakening piece and personal eulogy by death, Yakub Abiade Toheeb takes the perspective to death. “He is Death, He has Threatened!,” enjoy
He is Death, He has Threatened!
I am the cruel spirit,
That takes away dancing jolly souls,
I am the one that takes pleasure,
In making your honey taste like Bitrex,
I am brutal,
I shatter hopes of life,
I am an invisible creature,
An expert at wrecking great works of nature,
Once I visit,
Someone will surely exit,
I make hearts break in pieces,
I am a sadistic spirit,
I don’t laugh,
My joy comes from your tears,
My heart laughs only when your souls are sad,
My eyes are red!
My legs are hot!
My hands are sharpened!
I am Danger!
I am accursed!
I am de.ath!
I shred peace into pieces,
Snatch you from the warm embrace of your lovers,
Into the cold gallows of my chambers,
I abscond you from your lovely companies,
and thrust you into a space, dark and lonely,
I separate you from your lovers,
I am death!
I take you on journeys of no return,
I take you unprepared,
I give you no chance for farewells,
I send you away forever,
Into tiny mansions of six feet,
I am a terror,
I am dangerous,
I am de.ath!
I fought your progenitors,
What then are you?
I will claim you, like I claimed others,
So live today, like it’s the last,
Prepare for me every minute!
My arrival is imminent!
