Doomed by Being

When there was no man, there was God
After men will perish there will be God
Man’s fate is doomed by being
On earth the sin of Adam he pays for

Heaven for virtues and hell for sins
This is what the providence decrees
This dictate makes man weary
How little time he has to experience the world

With youth gone and fabric of health in tatters his woes increase
His attainments, his glory and fame, a history
The shadow of Angel of death following him
With claws of death in readiness to maul.

(Influenced by a verse of Mirza Ghalib)

    I get it. And the fourth stanza of verse two, "How little time he has to experience the world," the world still seems young even though I am not.
