Voyage of Self Discovery

We are born --- we live, we die; and in between we gaze the aftermath of the gods... and the great shining stars at night --- with greater grip in old age than fleeting youth; More fiercely we cling to ebbing mortality, as if there is more in elder years, and as a fledgling we only know a rising sun; for it never sets in first-time life, whilst excitement drifts like snow in later years, its coming appreciated all the more, like the end of a mystery movie nearing... Was it good? --- or was it bad? Will we ever see the credits? ***Meditations on Mortality***

I found this very deep and touching. Reminds me of that poem by Dylan Thomas...Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night. One of my favorites. Will we see the credits? What a superb ending. I sure hope so. Blessings and thanks for your lovely visit to my Veil poem.
