Events of Life

This life-
an eventful circus,
at each step,
presented with doors;
be no fool-
behind every door lies a different path.
Be chary of what door you choose;
because once you commit,
can’t recant.
Some flourish
Some wither
while all trying to leave a mark,
rarely one succeeds.
Though, one trait we all share
in this long sojourn;
we await our turn-
waiting to be perished.
