The Gift of Life

The Gift of Life - Comics

The Gift of Life is without doubt
the greatest gift that we receive.
This gift is too good to be true.
Myself, I simply can’t believe
that we had beaten all the odds
and we’re alive on this old rock,
which hovers in infinite space.
To me it’s really quite a shock.

Alas, it’s not that simple, though.
Let’s all just wait with the applause,
’cause all of this is transient,
and I say “all of this” because
the gift of life is NOT a gift.
It’s actually more like a loan.
We get our life, but in the end
we give it back to Death. It’s known.


Here’s another comic about the subtle timing of death.


I give you the gift of comics – follow them on Instagram and Twitter.
