Acceptance is a very deep thing in me. Ending comes to all things, to trees and stars and universe: why should we be any exception?

All of which means nothing, when acceptance is very much not a deep thing for a living person dear to you.

"Ending comes to all things, to trees and stars..."

The thought of stars coming to an end really depressed me, much more than it should of: I take this as a sign of depression, neuroses or something... way to go tenebris.
 
I find it does depress most people ... but why should it?
 
Exactly. It shouldn't. Fact. Face it.
 
because I dont want to die
 
Who does? To accept ending is not to seek it out. Death is a part of life: but so is birth.

Life is a constant affirmation of faith in the future: framed by the limits of all things mortal. To accept that limits do exist is to learn to work within them and even sometimes, in a brilliant nova rarely: to attempt to reach beyond them, to cry out words and doings which reach across generations -- but to seek never to look at limits at all is also to deny their gift. Were time without limit, why should we seek to reach, at all?

But we live not only in youth but also in a youth culture, with such a terrible fear of inevitability that we find it much more comfortable to close our eyes to it and live as though there were no tomorrow, ennui of day upon day upon day: but the sun will set, and there will be night.

Who sees stars in the daylit sky?

--I agree 100% and once I realized my limits, I became religious and unreligious and religious ect.... I also took things a lot more seriously and passionately, but all this weighed a huge psychological burden, which for now, I can carry, but it hasn't been a pleasureable jouney all the time.

But its one thing to carry the dull realization but when a pillar of reaffirmation like a star is destroyed it is an everso poignant reminder, like a stab in the heart.

As for the "youth culture," thats an entire issue in itself, but I will merely point out that its nice that not everybody is a poet/philosopher.
 
What a dull world that would be!

But if you are referring to me, it would be the second time this week that someone has called me that ... and the first time was in person.
