every time I think on
what I'd like to be
in future earthly incarnations
the hopeful fantasy dies out
I seen this I've done that
and but for a few moments of thrill
and excitement it all comes down
to weariness and ashes
all you cherish
all you pursue
all will abandon you even as you have them
whether you bother or not
the same dwindling of life makes all of it dross...
