Life And Death

Life erodes the body; riding its waves, leaves one drained. Spirit’s education, is wear and tear; the mortal is cut short. Beware the reaper’s scythe; the scalpel of death, cuts swift and clean.

A beautiful metaphor about how quickly we age and how important it is to learn before our life may abruptly end. I loved it!
