Throw a pebble into water,
See the rippling waves it creates,
Rushing outwards in widening circles,
Finally the waves fade away!
Life is like the pebble,
Making waves here and there,
Each wave chases the one before,
Slowly all wither away!
A flower blossoms from a bud,
Displaying its life and vibrancy,
Attracting bees and butterflies,
Slowly it withers and dies,
Only the howling wind cries!
Fame like the pebbles in the water,
Making gigantic ripples at first,
Eventually, it will fade,
And join the company of the nameless!
