Dead End

Dead End

Dead end after dead end
until you’re at your dead end.
Memento mori.

And if you’ve persevered
from each dead end
to the next in good order,

after the last dead end,
you might not be dead
or at the end…

That about sums up hope
for this fallen state.
All futility, until, maybe…

Q’oheleth convokes
to sit and judge
measuring you by your measure.
