Eternity

ETERNITY

Eternity is easier to comprehend
Here.
The figure represents a Life.
*
The footprints are human,
Man-sized,
Understandable.
We know where we have been.
*
They are 
Our Photographs,
Our diaries,
Our treasured letters,
Our memories.
*
The way ahead
Stretches on,
But for how long?
*
Is that a brick wall way ahead
Or is the Fairy Story actually possible?
Whichever is true
We are walking towards 
The Great Change.
*
And, just to remind us,
The Endless Ocean is on our left;
The Universe,
The Stars,
The Riddles,
The Enormity.
*
If we were swept up into it
No-one would notice!
Certainly not the Universe itself!
*
And, to our right,
Just beyond the ridge,
Lies Everyday Life,
Filled with houses,
TV shows,
Family problems,
Hustle and bustle.
*
Step up and over
And forget about Eternity.
*
You will continue on your walk
Regardless.
*

No one's on the beach,
I have got it all by myself.
What a soothing feeling.

Do you own this strip of beach?

Lest we forget.
