One who strives to make Truth home
May at times by lonely.
One who fawns on the powerful and influential
Will know the chill of solitude for ages.
The superior person peers deeply into
Transcendent reality,
And thinks about the body
They will have after this one is gone.
Rather should one suffer a temporary loneliness
Then the solitary chill of ages.

- Hung Ying-ming

I remember reading in a book about zen (cannot remember the name for the life of me) where the writer (an older man) said that he was not afraid of death, but that he understood why younger men were. He had lived his life and was happy, complete, whereas a younger man still has much of his life in front of him so it was not as bad for a younger man to be afraid of death. (paraphrased through my bad memory..)

I suppose being 'Zen' and accepting death are things that come with age. Generally speaking.

A little off topic, but relates to lines 5-8.
