Poetry: “Decay”

Something that is easily noticeable in the fall.



We are all sliding
That slippery slope
Eternally bound by
Our bodies decay

All things now living
Will one day die
Their bodies rejoining
The earth whence they came

Some things are faster
Are easily seen
Like seasonal changes
We see every fall

Despite our wishes
For equilibrium
We can’t change the nature
Of how we are made

All things in our universe
They strive towards that
From complex beginning
To simple decay
