Blessed2 Posted April 1 Share Posted April 1 So some time ago I saw a dream about the ship Titanic and figured it would be a good time to rewatch the famous movie. Just watched about half of it and what came to mind, we're all on kind of a sinking ship aren't we? My own, and everyone else's eventual death has been on my mind lately. I picture myself with a loved one on that ship, crying in each others arms. I picture their faces dead, cold, eyes shut, liveless. What is there to say? How could you soothe a loved one, crying, facing an inevitable death? I'm still young, just 24 years old. But it's not a long time really until I'm middle aged. And not a long time until I'm a senior, and a lifetime runs out. My body will grow old, youth is such a transient thing. Who knows if there is ever going to be another youth. I see other young people around me. I swear it seems like you never grow old. But everyone eventually does. It's a passing thing, the beauty, the young life. It sort of breaks ye heart. What do you say to a friend, a family member, a girlfriend in this short, transient, so so fragile life? How do you soothe? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memento_mori Is a hug enough?
