Endsong

Endsong

 

Hope

is where all wishes wait

 

In vaults too deep to contemplate

while time

 

Although preoccupied

declines to pause or hesitate

 

Yet seals

for eternity

 

Both the rich man

and the paupers fate …

              Time just keeps on rolling. Fate, if one chooses to believe in predestination. is a product of time. Your poem is a product of your skills as a writer. And writing is never a result of destiny, only of hard work and skill. I guess I'm stuck with the "pauper's fate." - Phil A.
