(One lifetime is enough.)

i wish not to live forever
i quest for no fountain of youth
make pact with the devil never
to cheat mortality and truth.

i wish for me to expire
like a candle flame when old
or lose heat as ember fire
when doused by water so cold.

i wish to live a lifetime
climbing colorless rainbows
my soul churning on each climb
between pinnacles and troughs.

i wish to delve into depths
and seek some frontiers obscure
trek across untrodden breadths
before Time runs out for sure.

hence, when at last I perish
my patent mark will remain
embossed for those who cherish
a lifetime of no refrain.

– a lifetime is between birth and death
