Forever – a poem

Forever

 

In the midst of forever,

As if forever,

We pretend it’s forever.

Yet it is not even a fraction;

Merely a blink.

Yet that blink has to contain it all.

We live our lives as if it will never end. We pretend that after we die we will go on living. We do not like the idea of eternity existing without us. Yet it did and it does and it will.

Infinity is all around us. We are part of it but not of it.

We have to take our small section and live it to the full. It has to be everything to us.

    ‘We have to take our small section and live it to the full. It has to be everything to us.’ – There is a quote taken from the film Gattaca – a 1997 American sci-fi written/directed by Andrew Niccol – which I try to keep on the back burner of my mind at all times. It is relevant in as much that life is a one way ticket back to the stars, as such we should never limit ourselves: ‘never save anything for the return trip.’

    Namaste 🙂

  2. This life is all we have even if it’s just a few decades so definitely we have to always live it to the fullest and do everything we possibly can while we still can!

I'd like to hear from you...
