Final Moment

Fear not the final moment
Of all your hopes and dreams-
It dances with the future
In step with destiny.

Charge into the present
And seize without regret.
Just remember you are mortal,
Lest time make you forget.

Greet the end with Stoic thought,
Rich with memories from the past;
For when the Big Ship comes to port,
It’s come for you at last.

Fate’s Will

A rational pain has found refuge in me,
Once given to whims but now I can see:
It is acceptance by which destiny thrives
And only Fate’s will which dictates our lives.

So do as you wish for finality’s sake,
As so often the end unexpectedly takes
Our entire existence and all that we’ve done
And drifts into nothing like clouds to the sun.
