The Wheel Of Life

The wheel of life keeps turning every day Birth, life and then the subsequent decay All living things must return whence they came The pattern always remaining the same All living things start life's journey at birth Become adult through the process of growth They then participate in reproduction Thus creating the next generation Life then continues daily in this world Until old age and illness take their toll Lastly, all must face death's reality That brings a final end to life's journey The wheel goes through a full revolution With each and every new generation Whatever is alive will someday die This will surely happen as time goes by

Yes, the cycle of life awaits each of us. I am glad to say that i believe there is no end, however; that life, once created, is eternal.

Cona, thanks for your comment. I view life as a form of energy. The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can nether be created nor destroyed. It may take a different form but it will continue to exist. So, I support your statement. Have a nice day!
