I tiptoe through life
leaving no traces
creating a song
that remains unheard.
The very fact that all is transitory supports the idea that life is a game, not to be taken too seriously. Great empires turn to dust, moments of extreme happiness turn to pain, intense suffering can become sources of wisdom. The universe doesn’t like stagnation, and is in a constant state of transformation.
Approaching life with a sense of humor and lightness contains more wisdom than it may appear at first. It affirms the knowing that “No, I too will not last forever. Nor will this heart ache, nor this happiness.” We are all players of a cosmic game. And the final joke is always on those who took it all too seriously.
