Shedding the Scales of Time

Ouroboros, tail-devouring
Snake of Fate
Transcribes a circle
Or a zero signifying
Nothing and everything
Leading us to the beginning
Which is really the ending
Or really the beginning
Depending on which way
You look at the continuum
Of our lives turning back
To dust, like the way
They started upon being
Spewed from the
Fiery crucible at the heart
Of a birthing star.

Ouroborus — Used by the Alchemists as a symbol for eternity, where the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning...etc

Ouroborus — Used by the Alchemists as a symbol for eternity, where the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning…etc. And therefore as a symbolic representation of the cyclical nature of time.
