THE HUMAN CONDITION
Not knowing when death will come
Not knowing what suffering will come before
Not knowing how I will face the path of death
Is part of my daily life.
What is my soul? What is not?
What part of me will disappear and what part will continue the journey?
I don't know.
What will the final retrospective reveal?
How many opportunities to love did I miss?
What will seem worthless then?
How many times have I already died?
How many more deaths and rebirths are awaiting me?
The silence I love now, will I fear then?
Is the life of this moment.
In this loving instant,
Waiting for a mystery that is happening right now
While looking at my life inside-out.
