All Things Pass by Timothy Leary


All Things Pass
By Timothy Leary, homage to Lao Tzu

All things pass

A sunrise does not last all morning

All things pass

 A cloudburst does not last all day
All things pass
Nor a sunset all night

But Earth... sky... thunder...
wind... fire... lake...
mountain... water...
These always change

And if these do not last
Do man’s visions last?
Do man’s illusions ?

Take things as they come
All things pass

She looks so beautiful, a smile like her Momma. All that hard work, and a husband to look after to boot - heh heh.

I'm proud of her too!
