“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.
