People say the world must have arrived
from somewhere and they posit
that the where was once nothingness.
It’s a popular story in the news.
We are born from our mother’s womb,
imagine we arrived from somewhere.
We are aware we are going to nowhere
when, like a candle,
our lives are extinguished,
yet we long to perpetuate
the memory of our lives in others
who will also arrive at nowhere.
Now that I have explained everything
and cleared up any confusion
about where we are,
and where we are going,
I will say goodbye
because I am going nowhere,
just like you….
