listless but alive

~Ecclesiastes 3:11~

The book of Ecclesiastes is well known in the bible for asking the really tough questions that we face in life. It questions the meaning of life, death. The quarrels, grudges and the fecklessness of life.

"There is no remembrance of people of old, and even those who are yet to come
 will not be remembered by those who follow the; Ecclesiastes 1:11"
A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance; 
Ecclesiastes 3:4
What does anyone gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun?; 
 Ecclesiastes 1:3
For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no 
further reward, and even their name is forgotten.;  Ecclesiastes 9:5


fateful or faithful,  I know not
for what manner of conscience
causes a man to commit perjury
or  what is the substance that causes
a man to stay the course.
sojourners on the bridge that
serves as the great divide
our paths are entwined
by the freedom of our own choosing
by the passions that rule the roost
for our decisions and our in-decisions
make for the choices we make
we are all at the mercy of the trials of life-
some enamored by their anger, malice and temper
while others tempered by the  knowledge of temperance
our fires  and our flares, nothing but  a blip
in the great expanse of time
when will we realize the ephemeral-
nature of  our volitions?
nothing!!! in the grand scheme of things.
In the end , we are but a product of our emotions
transient thoughts that capture our imagination
lascivious imagination sparking the loins for some 
while  tugging the heart strings of others to a greater cause
but we all perish for ever and our memories die with us.
But for the choicest  few
there is reason to  celebrate
for the life that we seek, is not of this world
this world is but a firmament to temper our souls-
for the joyous life ahead.


Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm 
of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor 
knowledge nor wisdom.; Ecclesiastes 9:10
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in 
the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning 
to end.;  Ecclesiastes 3:11
~Ecclesiastes 7:3~
