A Picture of Life – Sunna Bohlen

Life lives in
a chain of moments
linked in transition.

Relentlessly animated,
adaptive, marching on
with singular purpose.

Breathing through the present moment.
Keeping the past as a souvenir.
Waiting for an iridescent future.

As long as
emotion does not imprison us,
at least
we know what hope is:

The last thing to die.

Existence has no solution,
no amount of introspection.

Till journey’s end
always remind us:

Life can only give
what it knows how.
