What is a poem about the inevitability of death?

or a show, song, piece of art. I am doing an assignment and I really want to connect it back to this. Thank you so much!

Update:

I now really just need a show and piece of art if any of you can think of it. 

Update 2:

I realize I should mention that it is about the inevitability of friends dying and short lifespans

    It is a subject with several viewpoints, and you have not discussed what interpretation you are putting on death.

    For defiance I suggest Dylan Thomas: "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night."

    For resignation and humour I suggest the Monty Python song by Eric Idle: "Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life,"

    For spirituality you have a choice of Psalms in the Bible, and the Buddhist song "Leela Leela" available on You Tube by Jody Stecher.

    All of these deal with the inevitability of death in different ways. My favourite is "Ozymandias," by Percy Shelley, which shows how the vanity of man is nothing compared to the power of passing time.

    As a father has compassion on his children,

        so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;

    14 for he knows how we are formed,

        he remembers that we are dust.

    15 The life of mortals is like grass,

        they flourish like a flower of the field;

    16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,

        and its place remembers it no more.

    17 But from everlasting to everlasting

        the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,

        and his righteousness with their children’s children—

    18 with those who keep his covenant

        and remember to obey his precepts.(Psalm 10:13-18)

    Inevitability of Death

     by LAURENF7

    A cold,dark process

    Each outcome is a different state

    The inevitability of death is certain

    Once you know, all you do is wait.

    Reassurance is always welcome

    Whilst the future is set in stone

    Quick, sharp, painless

    Or tired are the bones.

    The circle continues to grow

    Emotions are close to the heart

    The journey is almost over

    The emptiness does not begin to start.

    By a trigger it rushes back

    Imagery is vivid and precise

    Days are spent searching

    For the wonderful world; life.
