5. ON DEATH AND DYING

From Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul

5
ON DEATH
AND DYING

Death.
What a great teacher you are.
Yet few of us elect to learn from you, About life.
That is the essence of death’s teaching, Life.
Death is not an elective.
One day we all will take the class.
The wise students audit the class in early years And find enlightenment.
They are prepared when graduation day comes.

Bernie S. Siegel, M.D.
