The End

In the end
Life is cruel
It takes
Too much
Too soon
It gives
Too little
Too late.
 
Do not
Be fooled
Every ending
Is not
A new beginning
Some endings
Are just
The end.
 
Life is cruel
In the end
It cuts
Too deep
Too quick
It hurts
Too much
Too long.
 
Still
It is true
Every ending
Had a bright beginning
And a middle
Rich
With meaning
To the end.
 
Life is cruel
In the end
It tears
All apart
All away
It grinds
All before
All to dust.
 
All we can do
Is celebrate
The beginning
Cherish
The middle
And live
Fully
To the end.
