Life And Death Are Everything

Poem By Fred Babbin

Words can be Life,
Words can be Death.
Life is Light
And Death is Darkness.
Blinding Light.
Comforting Darkness.

From birth comes Life
From life comes Death.
And so we living beings change
Into another state so strange
We can’t imagine it.

Life and Death; Light and Darkness. Opposites all the same things in constant flux. The Buddhist way of looking at things really comes out in your wonderful poem here. The Buddhist and Taoist view has always had a profound effect on me and the way I look at things. I think mostly it has helped me understand that there are a million different ways to look at things and has thus made me more tolerant of other people and their views and behaviors. Again, nice poem among many others of yours.
