Fade Away



~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~

i am a shimmering 
evanescent bubble                                                   
ready to fade away
at any moment

a bubble floating 
among many others,
other people, 
planets,
massive stars,
meteors, comets, moons,
everything in the entire universe,
everything that exists

and at any moment, 
the universe could wink out of existence,
into oblivion
and no one would be existing 
to remember any one of us.

all of these bubbles,
everything that exists,
constantly moving,
constantly changing.

the breath of the wind
can chisel away
entire immense mountains

the cries of a brutal storm
can destroy
entire towns

the click of a gun shot
can end
a life

nothing is perpetual,
nothing is unchangeable,
nothing is infinitely eternal

all of us will change
all of us will end
all of us will f a d e  a w a y.........

Yeah, anyways, I just wrote that poem on a sudden whim. But, I wanted to add that this poem is not supposed to come off as depressing(sorry, if it does). In the poem, I was just making the point that a) changing is inevitable and b)at some point, everything will probably end. It's kind of like that saying, "Live every day like it's your last." Because, our time on this planet is limited! It's easier to just accept that and enjoy your life than to be worried and bothered about it. Anyway, I just wanted to clear that up..
So, I hope you got something out of that, 
thanks for reading!

  1. Entropy is inevitable, but at least we can enjoy what we can. I love the bubbles and the meaning they alluded to-- that was brilliant!

  3. This is the kind of poem that makes you swear in your head a little when you realize how brilliant it is.
