Soon...





Soon
There
Somewhere
By the tree’s roots
We shall take our place

Soon
Moss
Will cover
The marker to prove
That once we lived

Soon
Everything
So important now
Will drift on the wind
Like scattered nothings

Soon
Life
Will be nothing
And death will be
Everything

Soon

In life earth’s roads sweep to the sky
And countless destinies
In death the road sweeps o'er the brink
To one Eternity


My friend repeated a quote to me yesterday that she heard recently. (I’m not sure who said it)
‘For the believer earth is as close to hell as they will ever experience.
For the unbeliever earth is as close to heaven as they will ever experience.’
