Many a page has been turned,
as the tale of our lives is laid bare.
And many a bridge has been burned,
as we spurn those around us who care.
Mistake follows mistake,
as we sail on our way.
And we've left turmoil in our wake,
by simply not caring about the things that we say.
But when old age starts to show it's face,
then we realise we are alone.
Then begins the final race,
to make up with ex-friends and finally atone.
It all becomes clear,
only when it's too late.
And we end our lives in fear,
alone and resigned to our fate.
And when we are about to face death,
we realise just how badly we were mistaken.
Then we draw our final breath,
and we slip away un-noticed, broken and forsaken.
Don't let this tale be the story of your life,
think twice and change your ways.
Avoid the trouble, the pain and the strife,
so you wont be alone at the end of your days.
