Life Is Temporary

in poem •  7 months ago

It is the absolute truth
But is also the elephant in the room
That we refuse to acknowledge
Life is temporary

The lifestyle that we led
As if we are immortal
But when our time is up
It is as if we never existed

The wealth we accumulated
Our coveted status in society
The power we struggle to cling to
Are useless at our last breath

Our tomorrow is not guaranteed
Let us then treasure our loved ones and friends
The good we can do today
To make this world a better place

The ups and downs of life
Our laughter and our tears
Our victories and failures
Are only for a season

Despite life's impermanence
Let us strive to live life fully
For the legacy that we leave behind
Lives on after us.

Our legacay should be what kinds of souls that we were, and not in what we have achieved.

Inevitable, and impossible to wrap our heads around... (at least for me)

These are words of wisdom. A lot of us got it wrong, placing too much emphasis on material wealth, status and power instead of becoming more human. Thank you for dropping by.

So true. So it’s important to live each day to its fullest and appreciate the little things and blessings that comes our way.

Nice poem. Love it.

Exactamente la vida es corta, y precisamente como es corta debemos vivirla bien, aprovechando cada situación para llevar el mensaje de salvación a los que están a nuestro alrededor y todavía no lo son. Dios nos ha llamado para ser luz en medio de tinieblas y para cumplir con el plan que él tiene con cada uno de nosotros.

Life is eternal. Our life on earth is short. Our eternal life either in heaven or hell is infinitely long.

I was referring to our life in planet earth.

I see you have used the Christianity tag. While your words represent the best of Christian sentiment, they are words that are a truth that resonates through all faiths, both established in religion or hidden in the heart of all sentient creatures.
Words that truly reflect your user name.
Words that I have heard and absorbed with gratitude today.
Thank you.

Religions have so much common values. The fact remains that we are all spiritual beings no matter what religions we believe.
