If a man can bridge the gap between life and death then maybe he was a great man. - James Dean.

Does sun question the meaninig of being,
whilst it revolves time after time,
or river question existence as it winds
through well travelled paths never knowing nor
seeing beginning nor end , no meaning nor crime
to question life; pitiful souls disillusion does find.

Life with reason is but race to a finish,
souls measures in speed not enjoyment been had,
rather treat life as wander through garden
measure no score, lest amusement diminish;
always remember; live on.

My thoughts began on this when my teacher explained "Ars Longa. Vita Brevis."

Excellent work! I love the contemplating feeling I get from the first verse. Your style is very unique, especially here on TI. I think you could have shortened the phrases into many sentences instead of two long sentences, but that's only a minor thing. Other than that, great job and keep writing!
