Vita Brevis


Everything changes and passes on

There’s nothing new, everything’s gone


 There’s a lot of uncertainty in life

In every corner, you find strife


 Face the unknown—challenge uncertainty

Mystery’s wrapped in adversity


 In this mysterious process called life

Don’t be afraid though it cuts like a knife


 Leap into the dark—where blind faith would lead

In this dark world, forsake any misdeed


 Tugging at you to continue the fight

Know that heaven leads you day & night


 Time slowly goes on & doesn’t really wait

I pray that you get to the pearly gate
