So many clouds I’ve seen
So many birds I’ve seen
They never will come back.

So many words we’ve said
So many books we read
It never will come back.

How many years we’ll live
How many things we’ll give
What happens if we go?

    My Opinionit's not only about suicide, it's also about mortality and the passing of time and passing of things.. and about living in the moment.

    I've read about a doctor saying that people are like the clouds, they come and go, it doesn't keep them from being beautiful, and your love is like the sky, it is constant, and doesn't change.. in any case, if you let them go, they never will come back, it's also up to you, whether you keep the people in your life.

    "How many years we'll live
    How many things we'll give
    What happens if we go?"

    this reminds us that we don't have an eternity on earth, and if we were stoics, we should count how many things we can give during this time, or if it is more important for us to live for ourselves.
