My life it goes in cycles,

Like flowers bloom and die,

The sun and moon are rising,

And never asking why

The seasons come in circles,

And meld into the same,

Autumn leaves and winter snows,

Then spring and summer came

Sunrise comes and sheds some light

Leaves moon and stars behind,

Gives us light to see our faults,

Then night it blankets minds

All lives they go in cycles

You're born and then you die,

You have to make the best of it,

As years keep rolling by.

My life it goes in cycles,

Like flowers bloom and die,

The sun and moon are rising,

And never asking why

@defaroe I do love a little wordplay, I must say! I'm glad you liked this. One of my favorites, personally.

This was beautiful :) It kinda makes me think of going through life and never questioning it, never sinking deeper to find out the greater joys and hardship one will go through. I freaking love the cover!!! Its so beautiful!!!!

i enjoyed the rhythm, but also the imagery. definitely walked away with some provoked thoughts, (and i think that is the point, no?). nice work ;)

What a grand little poem and very nicely executed. The rhythm and pace of it is spot on and all the couplets rhyme and have correct syllables and so on. A nice theme too and the circular nature of it is great. Very nicely done sir, a good piece of work. Gav
