At The End

At the end as the beginning
Existence is joy and grief
Calculated underpinning
Time the existential thief
So much on the future pinning
Far too long and then too brief
Transforming our faces grinning
Weeping into handkerchief
Ultimately there’s no winning
All life the eternal’s fief
Each hour our numbers thinning
Shallow lives in broad relief
Beginning with the mind’s awareness
From there thinking can extend
Grapple within reason’s rareness
Then return it at the end

No matter what you do
Whether you are cruel or kind
Or how much you accrue
How deeply your pockets lined
Regardless of the who
Or of notions as opined
The many or the few
Disparately or aligned
Not subject to review
Not lauded nor maligned
Unable to renew
No reason to be resigned
How much you owe or due
In the body of the mind
Your joys you take with you
Your possessions leave behind

Beginning with the mind’s awareness
From there thinking can extend
Grapple within reason’s rareness
Then return it at the end
