Immortality is but a dream.
Ideas and words live on,
As does a legacy left behind.
We are never truly mortal;
But immortality can never be achieved.
Immortality is just a dream.
We can never be unbound by the chains of humanity,
The cycles of the Universe.
Mortality suites us,
In the cyclical life of humanity.
We are stuck between mortality and immortality,
Never to achieve the other.
Reckless abandon to prolong life,
In hopes to savor it just a little longer.
But humanity binds us to mortality,
Just for a moment.
In a moment,
We are suspended in time, just past mortality.
And then, it’s gone.
Nothing left for us just past that edge.
We fall before we can reach it,
Sliding away to the infinite,
Realizing that it truly is the end.Immortality is but a dream…
