Flower once so bold

Inescapable time so ever leaching

Wilted, young now old

Deaths icy fingers ever reaching


Burning life as told

The pain like an inferno

Color now grey mold

Plea to continue to grow


The winter coming cold

The lethal claws of frost

The energy now sold

Weakness reminds the flower lost


Perceived invincibility false gold

Decide to embrace rotting decay

Lives scroll now unrolled

Farewell the suns last ray


Or defy, be uncontrolled

Fight to reverse foul time

Attempt to life uphold

Longer life is no crime
