       This idea came to me after a recent death on my campus. While I do sympathize with those close to the student who passed...the day of it was an empty ceremony when they 'honored' her. But for the students that didn't know her? It was another day...some acted as if they mourned while others didn't know what the 'big deal' was.

    And the reminder that in the long run...our lives do not impact others as much as we would believe...inspired me to this.

    dotsYou Are Already Deaddots

    Our lives are spinning pendulums in darkness
    We see ourselves as stars in a black universe
    Suns that small galaxies of our lives revolve around
    When we are inconsequential

    We are nothing
    Dust in the wind
    But not even that
    We're a breakdown of atoms
    Molecular structures giving way to nitrogen

    In the cosmic plan
    We aren't even a blip on the transcendantal radar
    You are not a special snowflake
    But flesh particles waiting to happen
    There is no grand all-reaching plan

    We are paltry, trivial, small potatoes
    But if you can accept that
    If you can still breathe with that realization
    You have so much more
    You have freedom and potential

    You realize that the world will still turn
    That Bama and Auburn will still have the Iron Bowl
    A new video game based off a movie will suck once more
    That there will be ten more would-be Twilight series
    And George Lucas will fuck something else up besides Star Wars

    The world will continue to spin around the sun at 30 kilometers per second
    The seasons will still turn, even at irregular periods at time
    You will die, I will die, and loved ones, friends and strangers will pass as well
    Someone in Cambodia, Germany, Brazil, and likely someone from your hometown
    Has passed away right this second

    And the universe will continue to exist as it has for 13.73 billion years
    People will still talk about presidents and wars will still be waged
    And whether there's a Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, or reincarnation
    Is unimportant to the fabric of the macrocosm
    Nor the space-time continuation beyond our personal reality

    We are cars on the highway, destined to eventually break down
    On the side of the road like the van you pass by on your way to work or school
    Some of us burn out faster, some of us will have quite a few miles under our belt
    But we eventually break
    And then we're a tow truck away from being interned in a lot

    But as I said, if you can be fine with all this
    Then you realize that you are unrestricted
    If there is no plan, there are no restrictions of your potential
    You define your paradigm, your presence
    You also lay out the restrictions internally

    Breathe in and realize you exhale death
    Close your eyes and realize some day they will not open
    Accept this and live
    And if you so want to be remembered by the universe
    Leave your mark, leave your impact

    Life is only as heavy as you make it
    Your history and past can only be known
    By the living that comes after you
    Death keeps no records beyond gravestones
    And the universe is mute

    Strike the world
    Leave a scar in time
    And make a memory to say you were here

      There are some very interesting ideas in here and on that note, I enjoyed this because although it has a dark tinge to it, it also has a positive vibe asking the reader to make their life matter. Thanks for sharing.
