As in the ending scene of

the Incredible Shrinking Man

not with a sense of futility

but with disappearing desperation

all struggle will be unnecessary

the desire to fight attenuated

as I fade into the background

a ghostly figure in the shadows

a mere silhouette of my former self

no epistles sent from the other side

just a long extenuated sigh

the end really just another beginning

just a dot in the sea of eternity.

I love how this moves through

I love how this moves through phases, representing the voyage of existence with impacting language, then lands on a profound, open-ended realization: a "CONTINUUM".


A thought-provoking and expansive journey. Enjoyed!
