What if the air we are breathing is poisonous and that the poison takes around 70-80 years to actually act?
With every breath we take, with every moment you spend awake, you burn away a part of your existence. Each person is no less than a star, burning a part of its existence to exist. Eventually, we all will burn out and die.
So all depends on how we burn. Whether we burn soft or burn fierce. Whether we burn because we are burning or we burn to make a difference. Whether we burn with all our might and go out with a bang or just burn and fade away eventually.
