Ashes To Ashes


Ashes To Ashes


Ashes To Ashes Dust To Dust
Thus Ordained We Must bust


lying in the sea of sand
molded images disband

portal to portal born to decay
blossom time bound betrayed

oceans of countless sandy grains
nature hewn or manmade terrains

reiterating exhorting again and again
shed superficial  pseudo façade refrain

spirit n soul are only ones that endure
bodies erode as all have limited tenure

Colossus of Rhodes was felled by nature’s tremor
Towering egos too shall be deflated by death equalizer

There is but one numero uno  truth ultimate
Ashes to ashes dust to dust us will time decimate

Granted footprints made in the sand will blow away
Imprint and embed in hearts by those acts that sway
