Time Into Eternity

Poem:

Compare rivers and oceans
With time and eternity —
One flows into the other,
Forever one to be.

The winding ways of life
Consistently descend
Downhill where the scenes
Appear to clearly blend,

Until distinctly so,
Further from the grass,
Tall trees and blossoms
Turn rare and sparse;

Mountains out of reach;
Where plateaus dominate,
Where echoes of the years
Behind resonate.

What purpose true there be,
Intended for a life
That must begin with pain
And terminate with strife?

No fleeting time nor age,
Nor shifting circumstance
Can hesitate to yield
To a modicum of chance

When the rapid flow of time
Keep merging, one to be
Into the stillness of
Stark eternity.
