Dwindling Away


On final day truth in display: "Growth and Decay" Going astray cure fades away too late to pray Without delay under its sway the worms buffet Vain D.N.A. from our null clay ashes in gray
I too have days of depression! : )

    World without end is here to stay, Amen! I really like how the rhyming pattern moves this poem along. This could be a wonderful tercet series. The rhyming pattern would take it out of the haiku or senryu series. Great job! Joseph

    Ruben, It's never to late to make right choices. You can do it!!! And it's never too late to pray. I love the last verse especially. It makes me think of vanity in a new light! And it relates to the nothingness of the body in relationship to the everything of the soul. God blessings. We love you here on the soup, so cheer up!Lovingly, Dane Ann

    This monorhyme sure captures that last day really well, I'm sure you would do well in the contest--& I guess we all have those depressing days. and it does help to write about it :) hope you're having a fun day!

    I'm glad you vented your depressing thoughts. I would hate to think you could write this while happy. top two verses especially poignant. Great write Ruben... Charles
