At The End Of Our Days

Thus, at the end of days the man is asked… “Give your account for those things you have done To leave the world better for everyone. What have you done as measured to the task?” “Have you misfeigned with deeds of vanity, Envy, selfishness or of avarice? Or have you…

Mortality

We will die because we must…and not because we could. The leaves…they fall…summer recedes… Mankind lends license to its deeds… But ambition dwindles in the dust of disquiet and falsehood. The years they bring us ever near to the time when death we meet. Blissful the life that has not…

The way of happiness

Full happiness eludes those who seek it… It cannot be bought cheaply or ensnared. Happiness and sadness are closely paired… For happiness is gained through discomfort. Happiness and sadness are of the same. One can’t be happy unless one has been sad… One must balance both the good and the…

The Same Forever

The seasons come and go But I stay the same Defiant as ever! Never will I abandon My sealed principles and my passionate beliefs Standing solid as a rock in a watery world.

I’m Trying

I really do try my best To make sense of the world To search for undiscovered knowledge To seek what others cannot. I try to do what is right Even if it is not popular I’m always trying to find My place in society.

Good is Good

Good is Good, it does not need, To be seen through the lens of Creed. And Heresy’s an ugly word, When used to protect the absurd. The worth of a man is measured by The deed he does with head held high; The knowledge that his work is just; And…
