Forever Is A Time That Nobody Has
Nothing lasts forever, everyone says,
but ten minutes later
the same ones forget this minute of wisdom
and bring back all that old speech
about eternal love,
all those eternal vows,
eternal salvation for their souls...
We all take our momentary truths
and promise they will last forever.
Everyone does it.
I admit I do,
and I really don't know why.
Perhaps contradiction is an intrinsic human behavior,
perhaps we need to forget our mortal condition sometimes,
but suddenly we wake up and need to remember it.
I don't even know what forever means,
it's such a long time, I guess...
Forever is a time that nobody has.
