Life Sentence


Miracle of birth as the clock begins to tick

Every breath leaves us one less until our last

Sands of time sifting through hourglass existence

Shifting, drifting, casting future into past


Unknown end meets definitive continuance

As survival happens without clue to duration

Living in uncertainty, traveling hand in hand

Without knowledge of each date of expiration


Unpredictable end should bring urgency to life

Leave no stone unturned so others walk your trail

Forge new ground leaving distinctive telltale sign

Monument to your presence recognizable without fail


Make haste and do these things as quickly as you can

Waste not another single second on your useless crying

Leave a lasting testament to your enduring legacy

For truth be told….As soon as your born….you’re dying
