LIFE GOES ON . . .

Life goes on

Inside the ups,
Inside the downs;

Inside the frowns,
Inside the smiles,

Inside the truth,
Inside the guile.

Life goes quick:

As short as it is long;
As fast as decades slow;

As brief as winks and smiles;
As memories ebb and flow;

As wonders never cease
To grab, pull and release;

Or hold, to cuddle close
To fabricated truths.

Wherever Is life going?
Wherever does life go?
