Life is Vanity

Naked we came, the same way we will go.
Our joyful moments are mingled with pains as we grow.
Nothing we have is permanent but in and out they stroll.
Then what is life and the desire to want to be old?
Life is nothing but Vanity.

Many have come and they lived  their end in shame.
Others lived short yet touched lives and ended in fame.
How we live our lives we will have none to blame.
We must therefore remember that  life will end all the same.
Life is nothing but Vanity.

Every moment we live is a gift from the Maker,
Expecting us to make life better for one another.
How well we fulfill the Maker's wish we must ponder.
Doing His will in our little way is all that will matter.
For Life is nothing but Vanity.

Hurry, it is the time to build what will last,
Forging ahead to make amends as we can no longer change the past.
Quickly and away our time will blast.
Content and happy we must be when we breath our last  and our life in the shadow cast.
Life is nothing but vanity.
