Nothing Remains The Same

Even though
Life be ever lasting
Infinity never ending
Eternity always dancing

Nothing remains the same

You do not get to be persnickity
About your form
Clinging to
Some imagined norm

Shape depends
On the space
You reside
After the changing tide

You do get to be grateful
For being unique art
Don't get ahead of the cart
You will get to do another part

You will not be forgot
Just be doing another dot
Having a new role
In 'Tapestry's Whole'

Nothing remains the same
