not everything…. must end

every  ~  thing in Nature
must end
like the year does
at the end of December
We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE
inherently grow old
and tire-out
eventually
at the end of our lives
our bodies wither away
as dust
under the stars
of heaven
we acquiesce
to the laws of Nature
whether it be
peaceful or not
…..  after our end
We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE
do live on though
through the help
of artifacts
left behind
for a while
in the memory of those
still alive

do such endings
to our human life
this end
somehow diminish
our good deeds
our contributions
to the living
where We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE
~   our acts
our proactive manner
to initiate change
for the betterment of all
weren’t worthy
of our effort
and time
hold no lasting value
or benefit
for our kind
THE HUMAN RACE
that maybe
we should have not
done them
in the first place

God bless those who do
who took the chance
to give back to life
more than they received
saw the wisdom in doing so
before their end
despite the inherent ending
of We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE

every ~ thing in Nature
must end

not everything ….

peace out
