The Cessation

It got me wondering today- What is death anyway?

Is it liberation from all sufferings?

Or

Is it leaving behind people in suffering?

 

Is death the initiation of a new journey?

Or

Is there even a new journey?

 

Is death the reunion with all your long-lost loved ones on the other side?

Or

Are there even any loved ones on the other side?

Perhaps, is there even that another side?

 

Is death the cessation of your existence?

Or

Is death an illusion that threatens your mere existence?

The memories and legacy you leave behind- aren’t these undeniable advents to your existence?

 

A thousand perceptions,

A thousand observations,

A thousand different explanations,

Yet-

Death- what are you anyway?

Will there ever be a conclusion?

Death-are you the conclusion?
