I Have a Covenant with the World, by David Hemphill

I have a covenant with the world.
It is that things will always end.
It is a promise that the divine has given to me and that never breaks.

Sorrow will end.
Happiness will end.
Pain will end.
Longing will end.
Life will end.
Death will end.
Thought will end.
Hunger will end.
Purpose will end.
Joy will end.

All things end. That is the covenant. And in that there is freedom.

Freedom to grieve now.
Freedom to smile now.
Freedom to cry now.
Freedom to reminisce now.
Freedom to live now.
Freedom to die now.
Freedom to crave now.
Freedom to search now.
Freedom to love now.

The perennial question regarding the purpose of life has been answered.
Change is the greatest thing.
That is why the best part of love is letting go.
