Now and Then


Who will you be when your clothes are gone?
who will you be when the moths of time become skin borne?
Who will you be in a month's time? a month older i guess? and till u bid vanities farewell, a month less.

What will you leave when your life is fast lived?
what will generations retrieve from your journey's case brief?
what will they be? berieved? or indeed relived they can re live an indelible legacy
what will you give? a timeline of gallant fallacy... or a streamlined virtuous regency?

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
