Life and Death

I.30. There’s no such thing as death.
I don’t believe in death. I die each day and find
Each time a better life than what I left behind.

I.31. The Everlasting Death
To God I live and die. To live eternally,
I must give up the ghost to Him continually.

~ Angelus Silesius, Cherubinischer Wandersmann
