Manufacturer of Memories

There today, gone tomorrow, mere specks of gold dust

Making and marring memories like a camera with astounding shutter speed

Fragility is the name of the game as one progresses at the speed of light from glitter to rust

Unpredictable and held ransom to fate like winds buffeting a thin and helpless reed.

The one viable legacy is the lucky repertoire of cherished good deeds

The only remembrance the fond remnants of a life well lived

Helpless puppets on a string, indeed

(Word Count: 82)
