"We are born with two incurable diseases -- life, from which we die; and hope, which says maybe death isn’t the end."
- Andrew Greeley


There is no place safer
than you.
When the world ends, baby --
when nuclear war breaks out,
when all the volcanoes explode at once --
I want to be right there
with you,
Pompeii lovers in a world raining
never-ending ash.
It would be better to die
king and queen of the forest
than live to see the last tree
burned to the ground.

I enjoyed reading this. Reminds me of a song.
