#SPoetry: Longer than Life by David Israel O

Life’s long
Not in years
Nor achievements

Life’s long
Not in wealth
Nor wisdom

Life’s long
Yes, not in power
Nor knowledge

Life’s long
Yes, ash replaces fire
Plant replaces seed

What man
What woman
Shall replace you?

He and she….one
Fruitful and multiply
That, the mandate

Children
Reward of existence
A while, that may replace you

Man or woman
Well trained children
Still go astray

Your wealth for squander
Your wisdom, they abandon
Your achievements, vain

What man
What woman
Shall replace you?

The poor, unhelped
The weak, oppressed
Sure, shall remember you

The rich, you enrich
The strong, you cheer
Soon, forget you

What shall replace you?
Good, yes
Only good has no substitute

To the weak
To the strong
Be good

To the poor
To the rich
Be good

To the low
To the high
Be good

Life’s long
Yes, life’s long
Good’s longer than life!
