Nothing in Life is Permanent

Why is life so complex? Why am I feeling vexed? Pulling one way, Not feeling one has any say, Too much involved For the problem to be solved, Not wanting to disrupt, Feeling all is corrupt, Fire stations closing across the land, Waving goodbye with a heavy hand, Hospital consultants contending to be at the top, All feeling scared they’ll be given the chop, Large organisations forced to accept a ‘reshuffle’ Making history in one big kerfuffle, Nostalgia plays heavy in many hearts, Watching their lives torn into ‘parts’ Thinking of others afar, With dilemmas of this kind not on a par, Absent family over the deck, Drowned children in a shipwreck, And in war-torn lands, pulled apart citizens with broken hearts, Earthquake destroying land in one tear, People losing hope in prayer, Solace is not easy to find, Throughout humankind, Just a quiet acknowledgment, That nothing in life is permanent.
