"Why people say 'life is short' I cannot say, it's the longest span of time anyone will ever know." [January 16th | 16/365]

Every life is exactly the same length
One unit of lifetime
And every life always one lifetime long

I am now just shy of twenty eight
Eventually this will be the half point of my life
Like almost fourteen is now
But it will always be exactly as long
To the midpoint from the now

But there's nothing to divide
There is only one lifetime
The smallest and the longest unit of time
Like the atoms of Democritus
A man ancient enough
To have lived an indeterminate amount of time
Some days he was living or dead
And others alive or not born
But he still lived just one unit of lifetime
