Predetermined Endings Poem

Predetermined Endings

Did you hear the cries of labor,
the announcement of God’s favor,
to a man and woman,
for reasons you cannot summon?

Did you feel the sting of pain,
the continuum of sacrifice for gain,
to get a job and house,
for the sprint to success like a mouse?

Did you realize the price of life,
the philosophy from Adam’s wife,
to sample want and desire,
for the result of brimstone and fire?

Did you hope the pursuit of glory,
the manifest destiny of riches by story,
to have recognition and fame,
for a journey no man overcame?

Did you know the result of all,
the fate waiting beyond the gate so tall,
to teach every person and organism,
for a universal truth, not cynicism?

Did you hate the epiphany of time,
the uncomfortable psalm spoken in rhyme,
to justify the birth and beginning,
for setting a course with only one predetermined ending?
