Immortality: Poetry

Change,
the only constant
of Life
~
In the face of this
paradoxical certainty,
we spend days
thinking of our impact
on the world
~
Our immortal heroes
are merely the ones time
has not fully forgotten
~
Gigantic capering stories
of people and places both
real and imagined
~
Set fast into parchment
and stone and wood
So that we may know
they existed
~
Thefore,
Immortality is
the realm of Thoth:
He only held the secrets
of passing in between
the Veil
~
So scribes and artists
and high priests
were often the same,
presiding over
the Death of Life,
then reconfiguring it
onto Eternity forever.
