Life,life - Arseny Tarkovsky



I don’t believe in omens or fear 
Forebodings. I flee from neither slander 
Nor from poison. Death does not exist. 
Everyone’s immortal. Everything is too. 
No point in fearing death at seventeen, 
Or seventy. There’s only here and now, and light; 
Neither death, nor darkness, exists. 
We’re all already on the seashore; 
I’m one of those who’ll be hauling in the nets 
When a shoal of immortality swims by. 

Arseny Tarkovsky The Mirror(1975)
