Swords of Damocles

Perplexed poem

In the beginning there was nothing, then from darkness came light. All I know is, on the day before I was born, the world did not exist and then suddenly here I was wondering: what is all this? Now a lifetime later, I still ask myself the same question, while everybody else lives more troubled by the moment than by oblivion. There's not much alternative, for moments are all we have.
