"And it will mean something to someone"

Do it Again

for Erik Anders

All of these years and all of this pain
Must mean something somehow to someone

When it is over what will remain?

One thing ended another begun
Up in the morning to do it again

There is more to life than what we see
I wish I could tell you about it
But I am too old now to explain
Death and would rather live without it

Mortality is reality
More real than the kind we think about
The not to be which follows to be
The reality we drink about

Against which we make up stories to
Try to make ourselves feel better and
Try to justify the things we do
If we fail to try to understand

That we are each an experiment
A miracle and an adventure
And usually a marathon
To go to show how far we can go

We go to show just how far we went
To remember us just how we were
Who if we are not were even so
Who may be forgotten but not gone

And it will mean something to someone
All of these years and all of this pain

When it is over what will remain

One thing ended another begun
Up in the morning to do it again

"Mortality is reality"...indeed, Steven!

...and we do it over and over again...such is the human condition.

Reviewed by Lew Duffey
This gets an A+, Steve.
Beautiful flow and you keep it flowing right to the end.
Do it again!
God bless,
