‘Beauty truth…’ says one,
‘Is all ye need to know in life.’
‘All is flux’ the enlightened one says,
‘Everything shall one day die.’
We’ll all fall down, One by one,
As night consumes the evening sun.
Count your days backwards,
‘Forever’ ends sooner than planned,
Waste not your life on trivialities,
Value every grain of sand.
For it takes a moment to build,
And a moment to destroy,
A moment to turn sadness to joy,
A moment for the truth to turn into a lie,
And not more than a moment
To bring a tear to the eye
A moment to cease decades of pain,
And a moment to cause it all over again.
But this pain of mine,
Shall never diminish,
Until the moment
You deal with the unfinished.
