LIFE AND DEATH
(9/25/15)


we shouldn't
statistically
be here

we are infinite
improbabilities
at best

yet daily
the miracle
of our existence
is taken
for granted

a miracle
that should be
the center
of our spiritual
foundation

our alpha

our omega

instead
we want
so much more
than just
to be alive

we want
to be win
with
our lives

attain
a victory
by society's
standards

a society
that feeds
upon our need
to succeed

and when
these goals
are not met

we are
losers

even though
we still live
and breathe
within this
sheltering womb
of a world

we are
already
self evident successes
on a cosmic
scale

in dying
we should
smile
no matter
the outcome

we have
defeated
odds much greater
than any human
could devise

let
the survivors
rate us
if they
must

let them
waste
the wonder
in which we were
all born
to revel
