Its all evanescent after all.....

Its all evanescent after all,
The smiles,the sneers,the tears,
The climb, the fall,
The apprehensions, the fears,
Its all evanescent after all.

Its all evanescent after all,
Its here today, gone tomorrow,
Having reached the top, you fall,
That's Destiny's way of making you bow,
Its all evanescent after all.

Its all evanescent after all,
For nothing is permanent,
Even if you're drawn up against the wall,
Happiness, like sadness is immanent,
Its all evanescent after all.

Its all evanescent after all,
It wasn't though, once upon a time,
Seemed like a road winding up a cliff, ending in a fall,
Little was known that falling ain't a crime,
Its all evanescent after all.

Its all evanescent after all,
Friendships, relationships, love,
Relish the scrumptious meal,
Received from Fate's vast trove,
For you may never know when Fate seals it,
Its all evanescent after all

Its all evanescent after all,
They change the locks after you've found the key,
So what, you can still walk tall,
Thinking that you saved some other prey!!
Its all evanescent after all.

Its all evanescent after all,
Tears roll down,thinking of someone today,
Feeling the void like a gall,
Tears are going to be replaced with smiles one day,
WAIT... that's the key to life, the greatest ball,
Its all evanescent after all.

Its all evanescent after all,
Don't give up, don't lose hope,
Be like the sun which survives night's perilous ride,
Hold on, cling on to the rope,
It may be the last straw, but it'll see you through the rough tide,
Its all evanescent after all.

Its all evanescent after all,
Its all ephemeral after all,
Its all temporary after all,
The only permanent things are HOPE and a little FAITH!!
For it'll be a new dawn tomorrow and you'll shine like the sun!!
They are not temporary,
They are not ephemeral,
They are not evanescent.......

The poem is wonderful and has been written with a lot of feeling.... I only hope that it is the height of imagination and not the pain of real life.

You can check out my post...there's only one in my blog coz I started today...but I too faced a moment of epiphany, if you can call it that and my sentiments match with the last two-three stanzas of your poem of not losing one's hope. If you like it...do grace it with a comment. Thanks :)
