Finale

Submitted by : rosmani on Think

I retired
because I know
I will die

Death is known
to everyone else
as an eventual outcome

But it doesn’t register
with depth
no matter how often we’re reminded

It’s hard for many people
to reconcile daily needs
with this devastating certainty

Besides
everyone thinks they’re on to something better
after death, and so they don’t dwell on it.
