Cupid's Sting

I burst in into this world full of callowness,
Naive anent existence and its restlessness.
But, it taught me to tarry-I have learned enough.
Imbibing the quiddity of life- I have supped enough.
Tasting its sweetness and bitterness;
Appreciating its beauty and ugliness;
Recognizing its victory and adversity;
But, it's like a story, it always have a finale.
Afore that day betides,
I will embed cupid's sting on four sides.
It will become the language
of every race, nation, color, and age.
It will become the symbol of unity.
"Unity in diversity" as I may see.
I shall then act in a hurry
afore misery could get through me.
After all, worms will celebrate their glory
to savor such earthly misery.
