    The Sequence of Days

    If you think of life as a necklace, where every day is
    Represented by a bead, you may be able to understand
    The sequence of days! A large bead, a tiny one, a round,
    A baroque, an oval, a seed or a carved one: our days are
    Similar, succeeding each other, each bringing either sadness
    Or joy, at its own monotonous pace until the string breaks,
    And the beads scatter, losing the tie holding them together.
    The Parca’s job is to cut the string of days,
    Thus bringing life to an end…
