The only truth


Being born healthy into this life
there is no guarantee
we advance at different heights
don’t know how tall we’ll be.

during life we make some friends
we search for an eternal love
assurance that they’ll stick around
is actually quite difficult to trust.

we strive for an occupation
that will make us contented and secure
countless times we end up, doing whatever we can
struggling through life to endure.

we’re not sure if there’s a heaven
or if there’s a devil down below
we righteously try to have some faith
at the gates we just might know.

the only truth that we really have
as ourselves endeavor to survive
is that after all that's said and done
Everything eventually dies.
