A/N: Ok, this one is very late: but it's here. Lost some of my completed chapters and such to a virus; thank goodness I prefer to write on paper first! Also, this follows a Glosa structure a little more 'strictly'. Anyhow, this one is a little more philosophical, but enjoy. And the next two are ungodly long, so prithee, don't expect updates any time soon.

Immortal Mortality

If immortality is to live forever,
Is mortality then to die forever?
If this then, is what it is,
Does not everything live and die forever?

If immortality is to live forever,
Then never aging is a kind of beauty,
But since beauty fades, replaced by wisdom,
Then wisdom should be a true immortal beauty
If immortality is to live forever.

Is mortality, then, to die forever,
As everything ends and changes,
Dying as soon as it is born:
But, as this is then immortal in dying,
Is mortality then to die forever?

If this, then, is what it is,
Then I must wonder if immortality is worth it;
The changelessness, the agelessness in exchange for life
The undeath of all that unlives,
If this then is what it is.

Does not everything live and die forever;

The seasons, the plants and animals?
The eternal cycle of Life, Death and Rebirth,
So then continues immortal mortality, as
Does not everything live and die forever?
