The Downward Spiral

The Ouroboros that is Life
Spirals down and down
Coming out the other side
And spiralling down again.

It is an endless cycle
Of small births
And small deaths
Of joy and tears
Of pain and suffering
Of laughter and content.

All pain lessens
All happiness fades
They spiral around,
Continually
One following the other
Fighting for supremacy.

We never know who the winner is
Until the Big Death
And even then, they may still race each other,
After we close our eyes that one last time.
