Dust And Bones - Poem by K.. K..

though we come from dirt
we act as if we are the masters
of the world we came from

though we are dust
we act as if we are steel
and nothing will stop us

when we die our bones know
where we came from
and they return us to our begining

as the preacher man says
'Ashes to ashes, dust to dust'
and so we are returned to our humble start

    This is insightful and puts us all in our place, so to speak. In the short time we're given, however, what better way to spend it than in denial of where we are all headed? (Report)Reply

    I like this. As Scarlett says - great insight. My ego should take note! (Report)Reply

    Dust thou art, and to dust thou shalt return - how true, and one ever studies about the bones dug up...there is never any flesh left, is there...and eventually the bones will go too. Good insight, here, KK. Thanks! (Report)Reply
