Borrowed Life

Borrowed Life

On borrowed space and borrowed time
Our evanescent lives have survived and thrived.
Nothing was ever truly ours and never will it be,
For our existence is a temporary elastic dent,
On space-time and all that we unsee.

From the gravity underneath
To the air we live beneath,
We’ll all dissappear someday.
In a black and white world,
that moment we’ll be gray.

And all that will be left of us,
Will be a few words to say.
And for these few words we must be brave,
Brave enough to leave a mark that doesn’t fade.
A mark not of our arrogance or of our name,
But a mere mark of our existence,
“Here lived the human race”
