Death is the major issue in the world. For you, for me, for all of us. It just is. To not be able to talk about it is very odd” -Cormac McCarthy

“Of all the worlds wonders, which is the most wonderful? That no man, though he sees others dying all around him, believe that he himself will die” -The Indian epic, The Mahabharata

I got a call
From someone on the brink of death
He said to me
You still have time, you still have health
I’m near the end
I fear the future that shall soon consume me
How could I let
Neglect to be the theme of my own story
Come to my aid
With every righteous deed and every prayer
For I am you
Hoping that you not be my own betrayer
