“ If Life Should Be Forever ” ~ might this hold being free ~

If one could live forever

Might this hold being free,

Or confuse so the measure

Of a wishful thinking spree,

Else be of bent mind clever

The while deny bid’s plea,

To objurgate a moot debate

On life spans short decree,

By the gods of fixing fate

Who exact this mortal fee,

On mankind destined state

Beckons thus eternal sleep,

Tho beg delay expiry date

We’ve to exit existence’s keep,

Lest this life should be forever!

 

“ Changing ” ~ to reach beyond ~

 

I’ve ample recall

Changing

To big from small,

Events the details

Of a measure

Notched on the wall,

That tells of progress

Growing bound,

What held be tall

Yet now looks down,

To see a childish goal…

 

Alas best have thought

To give the mind a shot

At growing smartly tall,

And place the measure

Well above the notch

Thus so grow to know,

There be more need

For brain to reach beyond

The marks upon a wall!
