Life is intensely fragile, temporal. We are here and then we are not--thus is the nature of life and equally so--death. We blossom and live, sometimes until the winter comes and our lives are spent, but at other times our petals close or are closed prematurely, never to open again. It is not always predictable--death. It comes unwelcome and un-looked for, yet come it shall, for us all. But, victory it does not have--that has been reclaimed. Humanity--we mere mortals--are indeed fragile, but equally so are meant for a life beyond this bounded universe. We are meant for more, and death indeed releases us to that which we were intended...the sting of death shall not endure forever.
