You start as nothing, less than nothing, and then for a little while, in the grand scheme of things, you become something. A blip. A flash. How loud or bright you eventually become is up to you. You and the world around, I mean, can’t forget the world. You could burn bright and fast, or simmer for a long time. There might be great fanfare, or a low hum.
It’s up to you.
But anyway, when you become something, you don’t stay that way for long, that’s just the way it is. Sooner or later, you go back to being nothing.
