The End

Death, the final equalizer; be it a leaf, human or star their end is inevitable. Can it easily be conceived? will it truly be understood? Do their unique differences: diminutive or gigantic change deaths meaning and concept? Does any of that matter much? Humans perceive death as macabre a horror of loss and decay. leaf and star suffer the same fate yet both lives end naturally without a promised afterlife.

    Three forms. Let us not forget the human form. It is my belief that everything in the vast universes are relative without exceptions within the scheme of all that exists; and when the end comes it is the same for all without any conjured promises.

    I would much more prefer the afterlife over a sputtering end! A nice philosophical treatise spun! You did a great job of comparing and contrasting two, natural forms. Enjoyed your poem!
