I wrote this a day after I saw a stranger die in front of my eyes.

     Knows no race, age, gender,
                                                        or name while it prowls
                                                                   underneath the radiant rays
                                         of the sun, or  beneath the gleam of
                                                                                                      a neon moon.

         Knows when man is
                                   dreaming or aware:
                                                                         A cold friend of mankind!
                     Though it does not care
                                                              if man is wayward or kind.
                                            Therefore, man can hide if
                                                                                 he must, or he
                                             can seek after it -- if he shall.

     What man hides from today,
                                           he may seek unknowingly 
                                                                           tomorrow; for man can only play one part -- so long, so well.
                                                     Since man can never,
                                                                                             never define
                                                                 when it is his time!

      Would man experience a better
                                                                                        life -- if he knew the very
    date of his                demise?
                                                                   Or would his life be 
                                                                                          the same if man knew

      not the time and place?
                      How can anyone answer either with such grace?
         So run along and play judiciously,
                                             for humanity does not need
                                                        to cloak their eyes to count
                                since the cold silhouette of man is
                                                                            always near.

                       It needs only one second to seek,
                                                           and make man's
                                                                                                  existence wither!
          So is it better for man to hide or seek?
                                                           Or does it honestly matter?
                             When Death follows man as his shadow, a friend --
                                                   in front or behind.

I like this but it was alittle hard to read through because of the way it came out after formatting.
