Contagious Life

This is a public service announcement
Death is not contagious
I repeat.
Death is not contagious
You will not catch it
You will not pass it on
To the ones you love
From talking about it
Fear may try to tell you otherwise
It is true
You can't catch death
But it will get you
Me
All of us
Some day
Any day.
You can't catch pregnancy
Or pass it on
Talking about birth.
Why does talking life
Have a high worth
Yet talking death
With silence we curse?
This is a public service announcement
Death is not contagious
So let's try to be
A bit more courageous.
