Finite Creatures

Today’s #Blogging101 assignment was to write on the basis on a daily prompt. The Prompt being Finite Creatures

I have tweaked the Prompt a little to suit me and written a poem about mortality and the finite nature of all the things in life.


Finite Creatures

Every story that begins,
must end someday.

Every sunrise is followed,
by an ineludible sunset.

From every ascent to the mountain top,
flows the gentle, yet certain descent.

Behind every moment of joy,
and celebration in the sun,
are the inescapable shadows,
of pain and sorrow.

For we simply are,
finite creatures,
living our tiny finite lives.

Mere mortals,
dancing happily,
on the plane of life,
purely because,
the end is inevitable.
