Life And Death



Life is, not was.
It exists.
Death is, not was.
It lives.
Life exists in death.
Death lives in life.
Life is God--no beginning and no end.
God is life--no end and no beginning.
Death is man--with beginning and with end.
Man is death--with end and with beginning.
Life is not--the "no beginning and the no end."
It is the beginning itself of
The endless end.
And it is the end itself of the
Endless' beginning....
Death is with beginning and with end.
Its beginning is the endlessness of the end.
And its end is the end of the endless.
Life lives in death.
Death exists in life.
