There Is So Much I Will Never Live To See - Poem by Shalom Freedman

The future of many I love now
Who I so care and worry about-

Future chapters of the story of the Jewish people and Israel
Of Humanity as a whole-

I will not know if our biological being is only a phase in our overall development-
I will not know if we connect with other civilizations-
I will not know if we succeed in colonizing other planets-

I will never see the earth without carbon dioxide-
I will never see the sun burn itself out-

I will never know if we have made it to the stars

I will die ignorant of almost everything the Future will bring-

My prayer is to God
And in some other world for all of us-

But will I know that?

    these are great thoughts... some which I would not wish to see, .. I do not wish for my sun to explode.. what would we do without the sun? we would be in total darkness and freeze, it would be the end.. so sad and better not to think of such things, it cannot bring you happiness, I prefer to think of something better and more positive... if I am not here then I am in heaven with all of the people I love and especially all of God's great people...these kinds of thoughts soothe my spirit...I hope they help you also :) (Report) Reply
