Why? What? How?

I used to think it was the evil that kept some of my extended family members alive for so long.

Ignorance can keep an individual sustained for a lifetime. However, ignorance didn’t serve me well.

What is life if it is not being surrounded by love and the warmth of relationships and learning how we can serve others to move forward together. Life can be a barren wasteland of unfulfilled haste, devoid of happiness and contentment. Oblivious contempt for opportunities lost to time. Sadness wafting ghoulishly in uninhabited moment’s.

We emerge into the world alone and we depart it so. We are part of an energy that is everlasting. Science can’t dispute the eternity of energy. It can only be changed from one form to another and this brings me hope. The merest glimmer of hope that’s needed to persevere with dignity and aspiration.
