Elsie`s Poetry



We know that we are born to die
And along the line we`re bound to cry,
There`s many obstacles in our life
Therefore, we will encounter strife.

Plain sailing in life does not exist
So onward and upward we must persist,
Seize every moment as if our last
For our lives will soon be part of the past.

From birth we join an invisible queue
This I`m sure you believe to be true,
Unwittingly we wait in line to die
We`re not told when, how or why.

We don`t know where we are in the queue
So we don`t know when our time is due,
But things will surely come to an end
Live life to the full before you ascend.
