Everything has a beginning.
Everything has an end.
Pass through the doorway
Look this way and that
See what is before you
And what you must still work at.

Everything is changing.
Everything will pass.
Guardian of Heaven’s gate
Look forward and look back
See where you are destined
And where you must backtrack.

Everything has an opening.
Everything must close.
Pass through the archway
Look beyond and look inside
See when you have succeeded
And what was left untried.

Janus looks both ways 
The God of life’s transition.
And you and I must value our days
As we travel life’s expedition.
