Since We Are Born As

Since we are born as mortals why otherwise pretend
We are on a life's journey that for us must end
For us humans a last day and night for us all
As well as all life forms from the great to the small
Three score and ten years the average human life span
On average a few years more for a woman than it is for a man
The clocks on our lives ever ticking away
Each dawn brings us nearer to our lives final day
It is true about time it does weaken the strong
And the longest lived human life in time is not that long
People who live for a century of years are of the very few
Though this is not saying anything that is new
Like all other life forms we are born as mortals is not a lie
And the longer you live the sooner you will die.
