We are a feeble, short-sighted people
We cannot pretend to know even a fraction of reality
We are incapable of being able to fathom the possibility of life itself
We, with the collective mindset, are as unintelligent as motes of dust
The expanse of life is wondrously laced with opportunities we cannot dream of
These are words we prance around with in life
Without realizing they are ancient creatures waiting to be awakened
And when we can open our eyes and see these for what they really are
Only then will we begin to live
Then is when we will finally be born
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

This reminds me of a quotation from the Dalai Lama, in which he says something like "People live their whole lives as if they will never die and die having never truly lived".
