The Shroud of Death

The Shroud of Death

Mortality is christened as the cord of inception is scythed into extinction

Parturition then attires each new life with the shroud of death

Coverings of mucous and blood cautiously replaced by the wares of life

Each new luminary potentially the next great hope for mankind

The nipple nourishes the tiny creature as it matures into the brave new world

All the while each new dawn gently secures the lid on the stone sarcophagus

Life has begun its fateful journey into death

Neglectful of the Essence which granted it the temporal ether of existence

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
