Although this work treats origins in a very basic grass root level, I honestly like it.

The words time and oblivion add to a significant aspect of living - that time is boundless and ever flowing... in essence, time will continue even till oblivion, since time can never stop nor can it ever cease to stop. And thus, from this constant flow of time, there will evolve a moment when we will return from whence we had come.

And that is the biggest point in this poem: back to my roots, could be taken as Mother Nature saying "back to the beginning"; it could be the universe simply setting itself up for a rebirth; it could be us realizing the truth and deciding to return to a starting point, and from there reconstruct ourselves; it could actually be... like "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" put into retrospect. Say, that's a thought. :hug: thanks for making me remember that short story by Fitzgerald. It is one of my favorites after Gatsby.

Everyone is leaving its origin to develop but at the end I am sure to come home, some time, some life - I do not know. It is a surprise :D

Thanks. I am just new to 6-word-stories and give me some trials. If you like it, I feel happy :)

I tried them once and just couldn't do them. I enjoy reading them and admire what an impact just six words can have...

Well, I was astonished, too. It is so different from other kind of poetry or prose. And the first two were rejected because of being just only statements. But now it works better and makes great fun :)
