Ashes

Written by: David William Breidenthal

We all drift away at one point in our life
We all gottah deal with pointless strife
We all slip and fall on that jagged knife

We crumble away...
we collapse unto the ground with dismay
We decay away...
we abide in the wind and we sway... 

We break down...we droop like branches
We smother the daylight with a death gown...we shed like ashes 

We all sift out our wishes once in a lifetime
We all gottah fulfill our goals in life before bedtime
We all elapse and flourish around springtime
We hasten away…we all crush into smithereens and grime 

Like ashes, we decay...
Until the agony dies away
Until the night blooms into day!
