The Knowing

In all of life
There is only one true knowing
That will bring You to Your knees in an instant
That will humble a man so deep in his own bullshit, he has forgotten who he truly is

Death is only an instant away
It’s right here
If You slow down a bit
You can almost taste it in the air
Nothing can take that knowing away from You
It’s Yours forever

I’ve found comfort in that knowing
Something about it feels so sweet and tender
So full of ease
The knowing that we will all die
And there’s no place to hide
Rather let death welcome You into it’s tender embrace
No tears, no fears, no pain
Only the memory of yesterday
