All I Know - Poem by Scott Stevenson

what will happen
is what will happen
what will live
will someday die
what is past
is past forever
today, i laugh
tomorrow, i'll cry

what will grow
will have to crumble
what is solid
someday falls
i may walk,
so i will stumble
i will fumble
in marble halls

a year
is just a fleeting second
a mountain's
just a hill at best
a heart
is just a speck of dust,
a fickle thing
we bleed and test

what protects me
scares another
what i drink
may poison you
this is how
we see each other
this is all
we ever knew

what will happen
is what creates me
life will come
and life will go
life is quick and strange and thorny
this is all i'll ever know
