In the End:~by Mohammed Michael Harfoush


 

 

In the End:

We think so highly of ourselves, don’t we?
What we were put here for, what we could be,
What we will do, what we won’t, if we’re free—
If not in mind and body—to believe.

We contemplate our whole lives as they pass.
We question every moment—every task.
We share our secrets, hoping others care.
We want our deeds recounted by our heirs.

This life will whisk on by the more we try
To hold it in our hands, squeeze, and deny
That we have no control, so just give in;
Realize we’re all just stories in the end.
