doves are in yonder flight; ante bellum,
the good often die young; we keep vigil.
life can never escape death; memento mori.
even the highest peaks despair; the skies higher still.
the world is not ours to inherit; dust off our feet.
there is nothing to be mourned, fait accompli.
but even as the river flows, unstoppable,
we walk against the clock, contra mundum.
Conceived because I was fascinated by some Latin / French words.
Christians may notice some gospel-inspired lines. Hehe.
ante bellum = before the war
memento mori = remember everyone dies
fait accompli = what has been done cannot be changed
contra mundum = against the world
