Not Ever Being Any More


Not Ever Being Any More
Does pondering one’s demise create an enigmatic quandary?


Horrifying is the notion of one not ever being any more


Dreading more so in the belief that one’s existence will transform into a forgotten memory


Ominous is the thought of contemplating one’s lifeless body stiffened and forever absent from existence


Embalmed, formally attired and eternally warehoused in a casket befitting one’s former station in life


Sealed for all eternity in a dark cold crypt with only a few of life’s mementos keeping one company


Surrounded simply by the many corpses of strangers one once neglected in life


Resting comfortably as Mother Nature’s arsenal gradually ravages the previously manicured flesh


Taking momentary solace in the occasional passer-bye who contemplates our one-time existence


Perhaps helping one understand why our journey was a necessary plight for the inconceivable soul


Thank you,
Joseph Pede
