People want to live forever.
Particularly the young.
They wish to experience everything.
And then they get older.
Everything has its consequences.
Smashing our bodies,
Eating unusual things,
they all have meanings
which if you lived forever
means you would live
with a smashed body.
Hurting and aching or missing something useful.
After a while
nothing surprises you any more.
Losing each and every friend?
We may all be scared when it is our time to say good-bye
but that secret will be worth finding out.
