Everything that comes into your life
must eventually become absent.
No matter how much you try
to nurture and care for something,
it will eventually disappear.
You can try to prevent it,
but you will fail.
You can try to prolong it,
but you will hurt yourself more.
You can believe it’s not actually gone,
but you will just be in denial.
Everything faces the cruel hands of time.
Everything has an expiration date
Everything disintegrates to dust,
Everything you at one point have,
something you take advantage of daily,
will someday walk out and be replaced with regret.
Everything good in life will fade away,
just like me.
