hello, inescapable!

When the Unwanted arrives
Maybe I will be afraid.
But maybe I will smile, and say:
– Hello, inescapable!
My day was good, the night may fall.
It will find a plowed field, the house clean,
The table set,
With everything in its place

– Manuel Bandeira

i read this from Paulo Coelho‘s blog and i found it as beautiful perception of death. we can’t escape death. we will all die one day and that is God’s promise. whether or not we are ready, death will still pay a visit, maybe in the next 5 seconds, minutes, months, years, it was already written even before we were born.

the question is, have we done enough in this life? (at least this is what i’m asking myself)
