The World As We Know - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Dust to dust is the universe
Ants to humans live in reverse
There are those who live by quotes of verse
And their thinking becomes less and less
Some people are standing upside down
Without ever falling down
But the world is not flat but ever round
Yet our feet are firmly bound to the ground
And when I look up to higher ranks
We hope they play not their rich and power pranks
For this is the world as we all know
And everyone at some time must go

Dust to dust is the universe
Each of us has a life part to rehearse
But first in birth we must grow and observe
And understand all things which are diverse
Some will laugh and some will frown
But never hold your face down
Some will be lost and others found
Some will be crowned and others drowned
And life serves so many beautiful snacks
But always remember to give back and back
For this is the world as we all know
And everyone at some time must go

    A great poem, we should all make the most of life and the world
    we live in, because like you say we all have to go in the end.
