A piece of poetry reportedly written by late Tosyn Bucknor predicting her demise has gone viral on social media.

Tosyn was found dead by her husband, Aurelien Boyer in their home on Monday night.

The OAP who died of sickle cell complications had written an untitled poem where she talked about her stay on earth and death.

In the poem, she said she wasn’t afraid of death and also admonished readers not to cry for her.

“Area mama” as she was fondly called, hoped to be remembered as one who lived short but had no regrets.

Tributes have been pouring in for the light-hearted Tosyn who passed on aged 37.

Read the “Untitled” poem by Tosyn Bucknor;

I look into the future and see me cease
I feel no fear, my face won’t even cease.
My steps on this earth, a testament to life
Leaving this place filled with strife.
Don’t cry for me, shed tears for yourself
For each date you acquire gives you a little less.

Now I know why I live the way I do
And why my mistakes, no second look.
If I live my life according to their pace
What’s my price in life’s meaningless race?
Too much odds stacked against this fierce soul
So each hour, all I do is attain my goals.

Spent a lot of days searching for purpose
Then I put my thoughts into poetry and prose.
This is why I was put in this world
Be a voice, Put emotions in words.
For every tear I shed and times my eye smiled
Someone will have known every option I tried.

This cowardly heartfelt fear not death
Prize I’ve earned since my birth.
My vow to leave a lasting voice after I was
Find a loyal number to keep fighting my cause.
Here lies she who lived short but well
No regrets for her, but all her story tell
