We Fear Death

We fear death
the bottomless abyss

The eternal destruction
of personal existence

The mortality of the
immortality of youth

Or do we fear the dying process?

Inhale and exhale
and we step into the darkness

They say you should prepare
for your death while living

In ways such that death comes
as a bud is going to bloom

A lion is roaring in the woods
A breeze is rattling in the air

That’s how I want to face death-
like I’m coming home

  1. Hay lắm My ạ, dù cậu không còn đọc Krisnamurti nữa nhưng có vẻ như đã có sẵn đâu đó trong cậu rồi. Tớ thích câu: That’s how I want to face death-
    like I’m coming home
