Everything Is Meaningless

…A six-foot-deep hole in the ground…

…A white marble casket…

…The heart-breaking thud of earth upon it… Ends it all

Our bodies; vain, useless, empty…

Our lives; like grass – here this minute, gone the next…

We toil, we cry, we fail, we fall, we mourn

We laugh, we build, we plant, we plant, we succeed, we dance,

We hope, we dream, we plan…

All futile!

Everything is meaningless, I agree with the Teacher..

The crux of the matter is – fear God and keep His commandments

Yes, I breathe now but, who knows when I will no more…?
