Death before death

Stop for a moment…gordi01_400
Listen to me as long you still have time.
I need to tell you…

I have died countless times
trying to reach the top of the world.
I have died countless times
chasing illusions and saints made of gold.
I have died countless times
feeding the beast inside me, the beast of greed and madness
that killed my human being, walking over corpses.
I died
letting your hand
because you couldn't have run fast.
Forgive me, I didn't know ...

I'm alone now…
Like a wolf without his pack, lonely in cold nights,
howling  in his pain.
The real death is coming and I didn't live…
For  raindrops on leaves, for  sunsets and  dawns,
for smiles, for tears, for hugs, for joy, for pain, for love...
For the sweet beast of happiness…

Stop for a moment…
I need to tell you…
Beware of which beast you will feed.

Poignant and timely reminder. Beware of the monsters you create for they may become your pets, said Jacques Derrida, and he said a mouthful.

Beautifully wrought stark Truths, dear sir. Thank you.
