Poet’s Nook: "Dust to Dust" by unknown

When you’re moved to find out who you are,
study the graves you encounter as you pass by.

Inside rest the bones and weightless dust
of men once kings and tyrants, wise men, and those
who took pride in their noble birth or wealth,
their fame, or their beautiful bodies.

Yet what good was any of that against time?
All mortals come to know Hades in the end.

Look toward these to know who you are.

~Unknown/c.305BC / Athens
