Lying Eternal

A hunk of meat

That once held dreams

An open mind

Splashed against the back wall


The sanctity of life

Holding no intrinsic value

Enormous pits filled

With those like you or I


The glassy illusion shatters

Making more clear the specters beyond the veil

They promise eternal bliss

When all you know becomes rot


So many fade to obscurity

Having lived a vapid existence

Many are etched in marble for faint memory

While superficial ink holds eternal


Many a birth was meaningful

We desire our deaths be the same

Though we will never witness

The impact of our fatuous lives
