If we don't wake up in time...

Life is fleeting
a moment caught 
by the camera’s eye
still perishes, passes
replaced by the now
that always triumphs
expectation, regret
all meaningless, empty


Distractions are infinite

In them there is
no meaning
no destination
nowhere, nothing
all is empty;
in forsaking purpose
there can be epiphany
realization replacing
peace overcoming 
now becoming

    Very well written, a fast-paced read, a very Schopenhauerian feel to it; " the fleeting present as the sole form in which actuality exists." (On the Vanity of Existence). Thanks for the upload. Regards, Gavin.
