My Mortality

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

Dr.Seuss

My mortality makes me melancholy


The fact that I will one day succumb
to the tug of my tomb wanting me in its womb
fills me with dread I’m sure you can comprehend.

My mortality makes me melancholy
because even though I’ve conquered the skies
I’ll still end up on the plate of a worm,
nothing but a memory in the minds of those who love me.

My mortality makes me melancholy
But only subjectively, because objectively
My mortality brings me closer to immortality.
