Ashes to Ashes
Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust.
This is where it ends,
From where we came.
If truth be told in these words alone, I ask
What does it matter?
The story of Cain,
The legend of Moses.
If it ends as it began there must be no purpose,
No secrets to life, or mysteries to unfold.
The leaps and bounds,
Meaningless in the bright light of the truht.
To give up our quests for freedom and love,
No longer stopping to worry over what we have done.
