May be protracted
May be planned
May be unplanned.

Afflicts the unborn
Afflicts the infant
Afflicts the child
Afflicts the adult.

Strikes the prepared
Strikes the unprepared
Strikes the rich

Cannot be negotiated
Cannot be postponed

Is your time to die
Wrong place, wrong time?

Death final, permanent
And totally irreversible
Left behind are reminiscences and legacies.
What will you leave behind?
