Make your mark

Life is but a breath

by Dolly'sPoems

Life is but a breath

The land endures our fervent cures,
We grow, we kill, we vent;
Nature is forever clever,
Soft petals heaven scent.

We fight the fight with all our might,
Boundaries to protect;
Our legacy of being free,
Is our greatest lament.

With no remorse we steer a course,
To teach true history;
A moment's breath before our death,
Life is no mystery.

The cycle lives and nothing gives,
Our path is always certain;
No one can dodge the reaper's lodge,
We face the final curtain.

So cause a spark and make your mark,
Changes bend the rules;
Be headstrong, stand firm and strong,
The world is full of fools.

From birth your light is shining bright,
The stars await your call,
Reach for them and beat your drum,
And you will win them all.
