Eternal Life

Do not hurry Fate
to be the first one out the gate
she always runs on time
ne’er early or behind.
Do not hurry death to come
he’ll arrive like the setting sun
when the skies go dark in hue
count on him to come for you.
Do not hasten Time to pass
its steady pace is not too fast
nor too slow as it trundles on
until, at last, it’s flown and gone.
Do not pray for things to go
the way you thought to know,
do not ask for God’s hand to strike
His answer is not one you’d like;
for you are a mere speck of dust
wanting to command a mountain,
and where you should accept and trust
the steadily drying, Youthful fountain,
you will yet cry
as you start to die
for seconds more to live.
You’ll say, “Just wait”
but impatient Fate
will not pause give;
for you who wished your life be done;
now, at last, your time has come.
So, be prudent, do not hasten
or dwell on the end to your tale
for it may come right as you find the Grail.

  1. This is true. This reminds me of a quote I keep on my mirror and I look to it every morning.
    “Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.”
    Seranish, this posting has really lifted my spirited in so many ways. I am so glad I have you in my life[well, ye know, sort of :P]
