Death Knows Not


United States
37° 45' 56.0268" N, 90° 24' 45.0648" W

Death knows not the difference -the boundaries- between youth and the aged;
It knows not the faces of color, race, or religion.
Death knows not the deeds of the Good Samaritan and the failures of the old withered man.
Death does not stop for fear, in haste, it takes all.

Guide that inspired this poem: 



Death knows no discrimination. Why should we?


Death also knows not the difference between good and evil. Amazing poem!
