Beware! The Emptiness of A Busy Life

We always hear them

Say “I am busy.”

So busy that they do not

Have time to rest and enjoy.

 

While we cannot carry

The fruits of our labour

Into the grave, we have

All the time to sleep there.

 

“All is vanity,” said the preacher.

All – everything is vanity.

As a youth I dedicated myself

To finding the meaning of life.

 

And now I know that as

Long as death lingers on

Life has no meaning.

And there are certainly no rewards

 

After death.

The only reward is here and now.

Let us eat good food and drink good wine

And continue to make passionate love.

 

For tomorrow, only our bones remain.

Beware! The emptiness of a busy life.
