Beyond our time

Beyond the window, trees, plants and blue sky
I look much further to the world out there
I see the birds flitter and fly in front of me
Much farther I wonder about the people
How many are living, loving and laughing?
How many lie waiting for their final breath?
Do they suffer, connected to robotic kidneys
Their hearts needing a jolt back to beating?
When does living stop being living?
Replaced with existence for others
How long to prolong that which is meant?
For whom do we stretch this time?

One thought on “Beyond our time

  1. You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something which I feel I would never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I’m looking forward on your next put up, I will try to get the hold of it!
