The worst that can happen to us
Is that we will die, and we all do
Death reaches out to us from birth
Some even die as they come alive
Others die before they are born
There is no escape from this reality.
Therefore we invent gods to comfort us
We are always in need of solace at some level
Those who follow stoic philosophy are aware
That only actions from mind can be controlled
Death is nothing that can be influenced
Therefore it is not of relevance to the living.
