On life and its vagaries

The only sure thing

with 2 comments

Oh it’s all a game of ‘hide and seek’

This life of ours

Every pose that we strike

Every stop we make

Every fall we take

It all oozes the time off

It all pushes that something away

Just for that second

Just for that while

Yet we all know

It’s a game that has to wind up sooner or later

The more you stall the nearer it comes

The harder you push back

The easier does it advance

Isn’t it astonishing that

It’s the only sure thing in life?

  1. …A sensible “sampling” of shop worn phrases, hardly shop worn in its effect. Good. I would add one sharply specific element, intrude on it, but that’s just me.

  2. I like the way you said that, but the intrusion could be on its part and not on ours!

    No hedging here anyway, it could be stated infinitely better….but it is supposed to offset the very banality of the event 🙂
