According To My Calculations...

According to my Calculations…

No amount of pleading
Can resurrect the Past
Or breathe life into death; no one
Can barter with the cast
That hails to us from Bygone’s sphere
No one can make time disappear
Before it filters through God’s grace
Into our need-greedy embrace
Where, here within its no return
No one can be too old to learn
Too young to die, too strong to crawl
Too assured of his pride to fall
According to my calculation
Regardless of one's creed or laud
We are all in this together
Only by the grace of God
