The Eternal Sigh

The Eternal Sigh I feel like my life is an exercise in futility I'm just going to die anyway Whoever will remember me After my children's children pass away? Perhaps it is better off That time erase the stains it makes Not that it even matters The kids won't learn from your mistakes No one cares if you grow old Life is learning of your defeat Continuing, while containing the cold The past is doomed to repeat
