Live with the vision that nothing is new.
Keep your eyes open for what you can do.
Don’t walk in blindness of what can be seen.
Even though death awaits paupers and queens.
After a century, decade or year,
no one remembers we ever were here.
Living aware that our lives come to ends,
keeps us from thinking they’re other than wind.
