Raj Arumugam

As Life Flows - Poem by Raj Arumugam

There's the time one does
in the halls of this expanse

There are all intentions and desires,
the struggle
and effort

and yet - and one only knows too late -
it all hinged on happenstance;
and there's the futility one can never know

You can only say with certainty:
It was thus while it lasted
