This Poems Story

I really went into this poem with a very abstract idea of death, that I wanted to convert from random thoughts to comprehensible English. My main goal was to capture the fast-paced idea of life and how death is completely and utterly final and inescapable. Please leave feedback on what I could have done better with this poem. The parenthesis are to really make infinity stand out and make the reader think more carefully about the abstract idea. Enjoy!
