LIFE AND DEATH

This amazing bubble of existence

My being, my soul, my conscious mind

Surrounded by oblivion

That awful void

There

Threatening to engulf me

As I gaze at my pictures

The fruit in the bowl

The books on the shelf

Acutely aware of my surroundings

Every nuance of my life

My breath

My thoughts

Knowing that everything I perceive

The universe

Its laws

Will cease to exist

When I die

Then nothingness

For eternity
