The Power and The Glory

When all our tomorrows have faded away
And memories gather around
When shadows are long and the shades hide decay
When stillness is swallowing sound

Still we’ll have no idea where we are bound
And still we won’t know what to say
As we ready ourselves to go into the ground
All worry let go and resolved

All misdemeanours and onus absolved
At the top of the circle the end of the line
Seeing the face of the moon has revolved
And altered the measure of time

Thine is the Kingdom, the power and the glory
Mine is a twist and a line in a story

Great depth, great truth and CLEARLY REPORTS THE SAVAGES OF TIME ON A MAN'S LIFE. Certainly a rotten fruit harvested from his fall from divine grace..A7 Another sonnet added to my fav list...
