An Analysis on The Order of Things...

At the end of daylight we find nightfall
At the end of nightfall, new day
Then, as the end of an hour evolves
We find another, hooray!

At the end of a bud we find flowers
At the end of its bloom, a pod
Then at the end of its emptying
We find fresh seed in earth’s sod

At the end of childhood we find Duty
At the end of Duty, we rest
Then, at the end of rest’s slumber we find
The return to Duty’s quest

At the end of self-will we find wanting
At the end of self’s want, pride’s laud
Then, at the end of pride’s self at last
We are prepared to find God
