Forever always remain,
One choice really,
But, what, is permanent?
Death? Not even that.
What dies today becomes the breath;
the physical and spiritual sustenance of tomorrow.
Icebergs melt. Fires destroy forests.
The tallest buildings crumble.
The mightiest of empires collapse.
Hearts break and heal.
Babies grow up. Seeds become trees.
Nothing is forever,
what I do can only matter so much.
Yet I mean something.
So I choose.
Not for forever,
