The Path into Forever

How silly all we people are

To try and hold onto forever

When forever is a notion

Made up by silly men

And the path into forever

Has many forks and ends

—-

How foolishly we clutch and grasp

At straws while we pretend

That forever is a tangible

That forever never bends

—-

What pride we have to try and make

This notion a delight

When deep inside we all know

The term “forever” isn’t right

—-

Forever is a fantasy

We tell ourselves at night

While as we wake we realize

It doesn’t shine as bright

—-

No man will live forever

Nor keep it for himself

Forever is a dreamers tool

That sits on every shelf

—-

Dust off your dreams

And make them real

And remember time will tell

Which forever you land with

And which ones you shall sell.
