Existence 

Is a funny thing

Because every single 

Night

I fall asleep knowing 

That I have a guaranteed tomorrow 

Waiting, waiting for me

As soon as I open my eyes,


And even when I don't

Want to

I'll just exist 

And exist… 

 

Until of course,

I don't.

 

Because someday,

Sometime,

I just won't open my eyes

Or take another breath

Ever again,


And slowly, just like my heartbeat

My fears, my stories, my hopes,

My very soul,

Will be erased with time

And then I won't exist

Anymore.

 

Existence

Is a funny thing.

"They say you die twice. Once when you stop breathing, and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the very last time."
