Body

Body, illusion or reality?
I am it or am not?
I have it or I have not?
Body is the illusion of who I am and what I have.
Body is the reality of what I am not and what I don´t have.
 
Body, when it is alive it is guided by will and desire.
Body, If it is dead it is a decaying organic matter, inglorious, that has its name changed to corpse.
Body, while in life is the object of our vanity,
Every living body is vain!
 
A dead body is always stated in the past verb, it is that that no longer exist to become what it will never be,
Therefore it changes gradually until it is no longer, but just a memory that one day will be forgotten by men.
Is this the reason my God, for which you wrote my name in the book of life?
Why it is not called the book of life, if I’m dead?
God, your mysteries are too deep for me to understand since I am a simple body.
I will be with you for a while, when I leave this body, and become a dead body but a living entity.
Another mystery, how can I be both death and alive at the same time.
 
This body will cease to be what it is and returns to dust,
Dust to be trodden by so many people of endless generations.
That is, we are living bodies walking on dead bodies that are no longer and that have lost its form to be naturally mixed with other bodies of whites, blacks, the browns, the poor, the rich, the wise, fools, kings and commoners to become a single substance.
Oh body of mine, if you knew what to expect, as the wise that today is dust you would say: “It is all vanity”
 
Body, illusion or reality?
I am it or am not?
I have it or I have not?
Body is the illusion of who I am and what I have.
Body is the reality of what I am not and what I don´t have.
