We Came From Oblivion
We came from oblivion and opened our eyes
Upon a wondrous universe.
We lived to fill each second with marvels.
We lived to the full.
Then we closed our eyes
And went back to the oblivion
From whence we had come.
There were no fairy tales;
It was not long enough.
It is never long enough.
Yet it was long enough.
Opher – 5.3. 2017
It seems so human to me to attempt to deal with death by imagining mystical reunions, reincarnations or an afterlife in some future world that lasts for ever.
I see us as biological organisms living in a physical universe of wonder.
I think it is amazing. That is enough for me.
Life is an amazing phenomenon.
Life is to be lived to the maximum. Not to waste a second. It is rarely long enough.
