Into oblivion every soul drifts,
Unaware of the world beyond.
Friends and foes forgotten...
Wealth and poverty left behind.
All facades of real substance.
Living it all,some say
But only one life all have.
Sow and reap others say
We all indebted to life.
Search for knowledge and wisdom ceases....
True wisdom lies with those gone beyond,
These are the grateful dead who knows vanity uopn vanity they say begets vanity.
Beauty for ashes,one loses all;for a time we exist,in another we exit
For the grateful were us.
