Andrew Charles Forrest

Of Inevitability

Of Inevitability


There is a sequence of events

We must all be prepared

Whatever we do we can’t prevent

The thing that makes us scared


There is one thing that makes this fear

More bearable however

That every single one of us here

Is all in this together


There's one way in and one way out

Of this we can be certain

But for all our money and for all we shout

We all must pass the curtain


So enjoy this pantomime we dance

Live and love life lest we loose it

And if you get the chance, romance, for

Our time we do not choose it

    A fine write Andrew.
    I got to cope with a 7-syllable word this time of the morning - inevita-wotsit. It will use up 99% of me brain cells for the day. lol.

    Thanks Orchi
    I guess it's inevitable

    an excellent, universal truism with only very few exceptions.. a pearl of wisdom for sure...... n

    Thanks Neville
    I expanded it a little
    sometimes more is just more I guess

        So very true and you impart such wisdom here. Makes me smile.

        Just re-read and this really is a fine piece. Into my favourites, thank you.

        Carpe Diem

        We all should, but either don't or can't

        May that pantomime last for a long time. I will meet you on the other side of the curtain one day though.

        • Andrew Charles Forrest

          Oh I hope there's music and dancing... and a good number of books... I guess there'll be a BIG library?

          • Goldfinch60

            The biggest library we could imagine and I will be able to hear Mozart and Chet Baker play.
