Stages

Rating: 3.2
As every flower fades and as all youth
Departs, so life at every stage,
So every virtue, so our grasp of truth,
Blooms in its day and may not last forever.
Since life may summon us at every age
Be ready, heart, for parting, new endeavor,
Be ready bravely and without remorse
To find new light that old ties cannot give.
In all beginnings dwells a magic force
For guarding us and helping us to live.
Serenely let us move to distant places

indeed, life consists of many stages of which we must pass through to become who we want to be. We shouldnt allow anything to detain us from moving from one stage to another. Nice poem!
