Death

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.

What is it that dies inside of us while we live?  I don’t know for you but for me it was hope.  What is life without hope?

Life ended a while back, a living shell remains, eventually that too will crumble, returning to Mother Nature’s life cycle.
