The Journey Through Life

For the wealthy and famous and the stranger to fame
The journey through life it will end much the same
For everyone born there is a last day
The clock on our lives it keeps ticking away.

On everyone in the World a use by date
And death for us all is a certain fate
And if you are World famous or one without a friend
It all amounts to nothing when it comes to the end.

Celebrities live and celebrities die
In that way they are not any different to you or to i
If in a hereafter so many believe
Then why for their dead do they bother to grieve?

To the wealthy and famous and the poor refugee
Death comes to all as to you and to me
Like the fruits of the Autumn when ripe they must fall
The journey through life it must end for us all.

It's a pretty poem, but never ask a lot of questions. Please use the English way of writing a poem and not as in Arabic. Good luck.

If you fight for it together hand in hand you two will get there. True love conquers all. I can attest to that. I have the deepest pure true love for my lady as she does for me and I know that true love makes it through. Work together and you will overcome and win. Again beautiful poem.
A beautiful poem and deep expression of love. I have this same situation in my life. I love my lady so much and when I talk to her again we'll figure it out together. So maybe if you talked about it together and came up with solutions together things would go better and easier. A wonderful expression here. I know when I talk to my lady again I'll make sure to prove all those promises to her and working together on solutions is the best way. A 10. Wonderful piece.
