Life is Just a Wave
We watch the transient nature
Of energy in a wave or ripple
And the short life of smaller things,
We notice them change only because
They have a shorter life-cycle than us.
We observe the permanent nature
Of cold inanimate objects
And the long life of bigger things,
We do not notice them change because
They have a longer life-cycle than us.
But all energy fails and expends
As forces rise, prevail and fall,
All life grows, evolves and ends
Obeying nature’s call.
Even rocks and continents
Cannot escape the doom,
They crumble back in essence
To dust from whence they came.
As the waves break on the shore
So must life cease from breath,
The wave of energy is no more
Expended on the shore of death.
