The sun goes pale and the moon glows,

Welcoming and saying adios to life, alone,

“Knowledge is not reality”

Becoming a bundle of firewood, questioning sanity,

What will be my contribution to humanity?

Will it blossom or stay seed inside of me?

I can’t pretend a part of me didn’t die when he, was conceived,

Stitched inexorably,   

“thread of tears” life is perpetually,

In a state of decay and blooming,

We mortals must simply have gratitude for such simple things.
