Death Be Not Proud

Sonnet X, also known by its opening words as "Death Be Not Proud", is a fourteen-line poem, or sonnet, by English poet John Donne (1572–1631), one of the leading figures in the metaphysical poets group of seventeenth-century English literature. Written between February and August 1609, it was first published posthumously in 1633. It is included as one of the nineteen sonnets that comprise Donne's Holy Sonnets or Divine Meditations, among his best-known works. Most editions number the poem as the tenth in the sonnet sequence, which follows the order of poems in the Westmoreland Manuscript (circa 1620), the most complete arrangement of the cycle, discovered in the late nineteenth century.

Worlds don't merge they just collide in the night sky
And though you may wish on a star, you still stuck where you are
You're so far away from home

When did it come down to this? You're trapped in an abyss
And though you fight against the sight, can you stop the night?
Can you find your way back home?

You can try to fix this mess
But it's all up in your head
You're your own enemy
And you can fight with all your might
But you're still stuck, it's not right to be where you are

Demons haunt your every step; they'll take your very breath
But look and see who's in their place, you'll see it's your own face
And now you just can't make it home.

You can try to fix this mess
But it's all up in your head
You're your own enemy
And you can fight with all your might
But you're still stuck, it's not right to be where you are, away from home
Away from home

Cause you've been crying and trying, you're fighting
To find your way back home, to find where you belong

You don't have to fix this mess
There is one who holds your breath
And he waits patiently
Stop and close your weary eyes
Know he holds you by his side
Now you don't have to be away from home
