All life long,
Struggling was he to fill to
Capacity with material things all
Available vessels
When the time came to depart 
Nothing was there he could carry  
With him,
Empty had he left the vessel of his

I must say Demetrios, you have learned a bit of wisdom in this earthly life. It truly shows in the words you write. And you are passing it along as you have been instructed. :o) Suffer we must, but good things come to those who are patient. :o)

My God Demetrios, how much you have suffered during your long life, how I wish a blessed hand could just remove the images of sufferings that you carry with you everyday since years. I pray for you. Love it a 7 >>>and a FAV. Love T.

Suffering my dear is the source of wisdom! Since I am not wise then it seems others have suffered more! Thank you for your prayers! You are a very dear Friend!

An unfulfilled vessel had he! You cannot take material possessions with you after you die, no matter what you may think! Just your raw emotions come with you, as well as some memories! Depending on whether you are going, to heaven or hell, determines which emotions and memories you get to take with you! Hopefully you get to take only the greatest of emotions and memories! I really enjoyed this incredible poem this morning! What an outstanding piece my friend! Great Work!!

My dear Russell, what we take on the other side, as Socrates says, is our knowledge and our deeds! Not just memories and raw emotions! Thank you my good friend for taking the time!
