The End!

Light in one end,
Dark in the other,
In the end just ash,

A glow in one end,
A weak character in the other,
In the end just ash,
A Cigarette!

One way to talk about the nicotine effects of fags. Glad I've never smoked..

This was an excellent write..

And though we be ash, we shall resurrect and become the light once more.

I enjoyed this work.

I like the way you mixed this one up !
Ashes to ashes dust to dust, and so it goes;-)
Very wise and intriguing work!

I see this as more than what it actually meant. Life is just like that. When you are looking at the present, it seems that all is lost. But a closer look will bring a hope so sure, and so deep. I agree with you that every end has an opposite of it. It makes sense.
Good write!

It's all ash in the end. Very thoughtful poem.

Reviewed by Sandie Angel 5/15/2005
I actually read the metaphors into more than a cigarette in this one. Very cleverly done!

A cigarette glows and becomes ash activating the persin using! But there exists no personal pleasure or achivement! unlike a cigarette you a light the lives around you and enjoy with what you do to others gaining se;f satisfaction and happiness. The begining is vital and not the end when every living thing perish! you are a precious jewel dear Hottran!
