We’re all thinking a lot
About the fact that it could end
At any time.
Life has very fast become
A film we watch
With popcorn in our laps.
And now we see
The final kiss is near.
But rather than the leading man,
It’s from a virus
Sent from Hell.
This wasn’t how it’s meant to end
But just you try and stop
Those credits as they roll.
I hope your movie was a hit,
I hope it made you laugh and cry,
I hope you fell in love.
Just remember, don’t be scared,
Life is just a little blot
On a never ending spool of film,
And so, without a doubt,
We’ll meet again
Somewhere down the line.
During really scary and uncertain times I think that we are all forced into thinking more carefully about the end. Not wanting to get too dark, but the virus the world is faced with at the moment can infect anyone. And we have seen that apparently young and fit people can die.
But thinking about the end doesn’t always need to be dark and depressing. Because if you are thinking about the end, you also must think about life as a whole. And hopefully, you can look back on the life you have had so far and be proud of accomplishments and also remember really good times that you have shared with your family and friends.
I think that although this virus is causing massive disruption and thousands of deaths, it is giving a lot of people a chance to pause and really think about life and how we spend our days. And I guess that’s a really good thing, right? Just pause and breathe and reflect while you have this opportunity, because we don’t know what kind of world we are going to be stepping back out in to.
It’s also worth thinking about what you believe is going to happen after death. I hope that you have a positive outlook on death and where you will find yourself on the other side. My faith helps me to feel less scared and I hope that you have faith in something bigger than what we have here on Earth.
Use this precious time wisely.
