The One Never Destined To Die - Poem by Francis Duggan

Though in the field of human endeavor a huge impression by them made
In time even the greats of human history their names from history's pages will fade
On all life forms there is a time limit but when memories of the last human from history's pages will have gone
The one known to many as Nature will be alive and living on
The great people of human history may live in history's pages today
But the World far older than written history and in time all things do fade away
Yet Nature who has lived forever will be around forever more
Us humans like Autumn leaves in the river flowing onwards to the ocean shore
When we see ourselves as self important to our own selves we only do lie
We are no different to the earth worm since we too are born to die
The monarch may be born with the privileges of one day sitting on the throne
But he or she just a mere mortal just one of flesh and blood and bone
But Nature wil live on forever as the one never destined to die
I only say of her what is factual and fact as we know does not lie.
