Memento Mori by Saharsh Satheesh

Night drops like shadows
when the sun abides,
casting only darkness,
without the outlines.

But venture outwards,
thousands of miles and,
the dwarfed outline
of yourself appears.

For it is time and ego
that anchors us to this world,
and without light or shadows,
never would we realize

the inevitability of death.

    For it is time and ego
    that anchors us to this world,

    never would we realize

    the inevitability of death.”👌🏼
