Poem By Marvin Brato Sr
Everything that rises
upon reaching the peak
cannot stay there for long
like the sun that ascent to midday
soon descends to settle at nighttime.
Our life acts the same manner
from birth we grow to adulthood
age continues but health declines
unlike the sun we cannot go up again
later we lie into permanent state of rest!
Mortality is factual reality
man lives to experience time
opportunities are for the taking
do we grab and take the challenge
or simply ignore and wait for the twilight?
