is finality really that bad?

Finality is much debated

Is it a bad thing? Can we abate it?


We’re all scared of the end, at curtain call

Did we get what we wanted at all?

Time is finite, never ample

It's always a fight and a gamble

Life’s rife with strife for more time

To build something that remains sublime


You’re right, time is forever running out

Never allowing for much throughout

Always fast

Never surpassed

And we’re always left in doubt


Ah! But would you work hard if you knew

That life is infinite, with no end in view

Or would you procrastinate and laze

Knowing that tomorrow is no longer a haze

Its hard to say for sure or procure

A definite answer that’s complete and pure

But do the best you can in the here and now

And don’t worry about the end for now.
