Life Stages In Senryu
Author: Mark Spencer
Darkness is replaced
by the painful sting of light,
as air fills the lungs.
is obscured by the unease
of our helplessness.
Life is a playground
and everyone is the same,
viewed through a child’s eyes.
Playgrounds are replaced
by reality’s classroom,
and learning begins.
leads to a desperate appeal;
rebellion is born.
We take up the search
to find our place in the world;
a quest for meaning.
replace the dreams of our youth,
our course has been laid.
realization sets in,
decisions are made.
of romantic memories,
lost somewhere in time.
Confusion sets in,
concentration is labored;
Light begins to fade,
we feel our body succumb,
as air leaves the lungs.

That really is the question isn't it Luca? An answer I've written many times in poems like The Library, Final Judgment and Angels On The Battlefield. Ultimately, what happens when you die depends entirely on you.
