Death

The most asked question of life isn’t about living itself,
But about death.
How were we created?
Where do we go when it is over?

The question isn’t about life,
But the absence of it.
Is death similar to the nothingness before birth?
Something completely different?
Does our conscience change that?

We never remember birth.
Does knowledge of life cause us to remember death?

It seems impossible to fade back into nothing,
After realizing what existence is.
Where do we go after death?

Trapped with all knowledge underground?
Our consciousness torn to black?
Do we reset?
Live and learn again?

We spend our lives thinking about death.
With fear, curiosity, anticipation.
Without a clear answer,
Only a hope and a wish.
