Both - Poem by Keller Mcalpin

Morning sunlight blinds my eyes
For everything that's born will die
From the slow cooling of rocks
To the change of the sea
My body would die
If I lived eternally

    I mean yeah I was more saying the mind out lives the body.
    But poetry allays open to interpretation.

    The last two lines of this poem presents a paradox, 'Your body will die if you lived eternally.' How so? Is this taken, by you, literally or figuratively? The rest of the poem makes perfect sense. All things born one day will die; that`s, what I called, the law of existemce.

    Nice try with this!
