I belong
to a world gone by
When it came to its expiry date
That world expired.
Leaving its inhabitants
out in the cold
The world did not know
that the expiry date of the world
is also
the expiry date
of its inhabitants
Someone, someplace
made a mistake
and now I live
well past my expiry date
in a world
that is no more.

As long as even one of its inhabitants is alive, the world can't expire. The expiration is a moment in time. Time, the only true unit that can ever be. Once the moment passes, a new quantum begins... the world rises again every moment, just as it dies the same moment.
