Life Is Temporary


It is the absolute truth
But is also the elephant in the room
That we refuse to acknowledge
Life is temporary

The lifestyle that we led
As if we are immortal
But when our time is up
It is as if we never existed

The wealth we accumulated
Our coveted status in society
The power we struggle to cling to
Are useless at our last breath

Our tomorrow is not guaranteed
Let us then treasure our loved ones and friends
The good we can do today
To make this world a better place

The ups and downs of life
Our laughter and our tears
Our victories and failures
Are only for a season

Despite life's impermanence
Let us strive to live life fully
For the legacy that we leave behind
Lives on after us.
