And the race goes on….

The Race

 

Further than death, further than life,

further than love, further than myself,

further than ourselves,

further than those persons we once were,

and those we could have become.

And the race goes on.

 

Octavian Paler, from the collection, ‘Definitions’, Istros Books, 2011
