What Will Last

Nothing's so solid
it can't crack or crumble.
Nothing outlasts time.
“All things pass; all things pass.”[1]
All joys, all sorrows
—today's, or tomorrow's—
all pleasures, all pains,
all shall fall away.
                                       Things may evolve;    
they may even revolve
for eons on end.
But all will devolve
in the End.
No thing outlasts time.

All persons do.

[1] St. Teresa of Avila.
