Ashes all around - Poem

Recommended Posts

 

Ashes all around,

 

Each particle of cinder was a testimony of a moment now long past,

Each dying flame is a remainder of his memories from a distant past,

 

In a bonfire, scorched is everything that once was owned,

As with everything touched by the sands of time,

 

No more shadows in the present, only in the past,

Yellow pages burning fast.

 

Rust in memories from corrupted days,

All withers with the flowing of age,

 

Yet everything is as intended,

Thus he spoke:

 

“All I am will go with me, for all I have done and said”

”Was what I am!”

 

Work forged with heart and soul

Actions carried with mind and wit.

 

Not a moment yielded,

Not a second wasted.

 

Now all burns with him,

All he was is gone

 

His ashes scattered all around.
