Everything Passes - Poem by Alade Abayomi Idris

Everything passes
Such is the nature of things
The time we live in passes
And so are the moments we have
Tears do not flow forever
It passes
Smiles do not grow broader
It passes
And when they have passed
All that have happened seem not to have happened.

Everything passes
Good, bad, great and low
All passes
Power passes
Ambitions evaporate with fulfilment
Pains disappear with time
And when they have passed
All that have happened seem not to have happened.

Everything passes
Beauty passes
Ugliness is not spared
Money passes and so are money chasers
Even the world would one day passes
And when they have passed
All that have happened seem not to have happened.
