Vanity! Vanity!

Trapped! (WP)

Final Outcome….

smile emoticon kolobok

Encumbered by a chronic lack of care,
The privileged their arrogance lay bare,
Excuses oft abound
Unfairness to confound,
But ne’er a thought their status to forswear.

Then comes the time for Reaper to attend,
When all and sundry reap their dividend,
No measure of success
Shall Destiny redress,
The Elements consume all in the End!

Vain aspiration is a transient cause,
Life’s deeper values beg command a pause –
The joy of what’s To Be
In Here-and-Now you see,
Priorities appraised will gain applause!

  3. Ah, seeing this forlorn and neglected “dancing fairy” again makes me smile…I might liken her to a ballet class for the very elderly (even more elderly than me) … ah yes, beauty may fade but not the memory of beauty
