ANGEL OF DEATH.


She comes in her black hooded cloak,

Forever writing in a large book,

And forever erasing,

What she writes,

I know my redeemer liveth.

 

She reflects man’s irresolute,

Nature towards death,

In her eyes the desire,

To take me home,

Touch, not my anointed.

 

In her hands, a scroll,

Regarding the kismet of mortals,

I shall not die but live,

Let the redeemed of the Lord,

Let them say so.

 

She is a personification of death,

Ending life at the appointed death,

Killing the inhabitants of Jerusalem,

With long life, He’ll satisfy me,

Show me my salvation.

 

She rides through heaven to earth,

On a red horse of vanquishing,

 With a drawn sword in her hand,

To smite my soul,

I fear no evil.

 

Thy rod and thy staff,

My everlasting comfort,

Let your heart not be troubled,

There will be no more death,

Abere a lo.

 

We all have time,

And when my time comes,

Though I get scared,

Arise and shine Gbotemi,

Death you don’t scare me.

 

Envy the dead,

For they have gone to rest,

To my departed loved ones,

I will see you again,

Therefore, my heart will rejoice.
