The Brink

Substance and dissolution,
Evolution and extinction,
Consciousness and nothingness,
Origin and evanescence.

Whence we come?
Where then, do we go?

The years, marked; the countless bonds, forged;
The exchange, everlasting.

Thoughts, words, actions;
Inanimate objects and places,
Everyday objects and possessions as well,
Immortalized, irreplaceable, permanent.

Yet, the memory fades,
And life must go on.

Death is infamous,
'Tis life that is uncertain.
