Expiration date

‘Expiration date’ is about realizing that everything has an end no matter how much we fight for it. That realization can make you see that some things are not worth the fight if the return on investment is low.

Our expiration date is slowly nearing
we knew the duration from the beginning
nothing lasts; in that retrospect nobody’s winning

We treaded lightly on the bridge
it was nearing completion
but the window closed; we acknowledged the submission

We shifted the blame
between you, me or them
out of focus; instead of contemplating when

Our hindsight is easy
reflecting on what was and what now
we hope the future is bright; for now it’s ciao
