One person dies in full vigor,
completely secure and at ease,
well nourished in body,
bones rich with marrow.
Another dies in bitterness of soul,
never having enjoyed anything good.
Side by side they lie in the dust,
and worms cover them both
Gone Too Soon - Something I wrote not too long ago reflects the same thoughts from the Bible
Every time when we are cribbing that everyone else other than us is more blessed than we are, we hear a news which highlights the suffering other people are undergoing.
Today I heard of another news where another friend of me passed away when she is not supposed to. It is just that when we see such things happening around us it reminds us how futile this life is but how much we hold this life dear to us. When we look at it with birds eye or through GODs eyes every ones life will look so insignificant in the vast timescale of this earth. But to each their life is the only life they get and it is their only and last chance. Though we know all the philosophy surrounding life it is always difficult to accept death when it happens.
