All Lost Souls

All lost souls show themselves eventually,
If not perpetually on display.
Whether on stage or in the firmament
Many stars excel or show their beauty
For a while, but time does not last.
Time will exceed their grasp.

For the lost, the light fades in and out
And keeps the audience constantly guessing—
We see the light but know the star may be already dead.
For some, the light burns very brightly at the start of life,
For others at the end—but always it is quenched,
Whether when expected or by early notice.

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
