It is only a short time from now
That I must leave my body and earthly ties,
Forget that I ever visited the world
And disappear in the thin mists of eternity.
While the journey on earth
Was both a wild adventure
As well as an empty exercise –
It was actually an endless mourning.
Humans live by strange values and rules,
Obvious truths are subjected to endless logical testing,
Turning our values into a commodity,
Our experience a mindless exercise.
So much weight is put on intelligence,
So much value given to material wealth,
When man lives for only a short while,
Isn’t this a reckless failure of our commonsense?.
But I am here now
At the point of departure from the world,
Will you hold my hand till the last moment
And join me in the great adventure ahead?
