Dying before death

By cadymae

Un-reaching the reached

Un-knowing the punch-line

Un-planting your roots

Un-believing the doctrines

Un-living in virtue

Un-dressing the naked

Un-bleeding the gutted

Un-speaking any Truth

You stagger and fail inward and drown.

    Dig it. Live in the moment as much as we can. Death exists to make us appreciate our finiteness.
