Eternity happened before you.
Didn’t notice, did you?

The doctor pulls you forth into the world.
You gather the courage to hold hands with Stacy in 4th grade.
For what?
You get your first kiss when your 14.
You have your first alcoholic drink and lose your virginity when your 19.
To what purpose?
You meet your future wife at 22.
Now what?
You are married at 25.
What’s left?
You receive that big promotion at 45.
And then?
You retire and move to a quiet house at 65.
How much is left?
You lie down and don’t wake up at 80.
Did you do what you wanted?

Eternity goes on without you.
Was there a point?
