Mortality

Mortality
 1
 
 
Requirements,
 2
 
 
A candle, a match, and a light,
 3
3 requirements for life,
 4
Steadily reducing in height
 5
 
 
Progressing,
 6
 
 
As day progresses into night,
 7
As night progresses into day,
 8
An ever continuing sight
 9
 
 
Till,
 10
 
 
A candle, a flame, a gush of wind,
 11
3 requirements for a brief,
 12
Extinguishing
 13
 
 
Or,
 14
 
 
Alas the candle burning,
 15
Reaches the last of its wick,
 16
Bleak light, flickering,struggling
 17
 
 
Struggle,
 18
 
 
With darkness at its wake,
 19
Fighting for existence
 20
It struggles, an unopposable fate.
 21
 
 
End,
 22
 
 
In the end it lets go,
 23
Its light, to allow,
 24
The next light to show.
 25
