To Be or Not to Be

Time marches on relentlessly
Ordered plans fruitless

Being alive takes effort
Every breath a bonus

Overcoming adversity
Realizing dreams

Never giving in
Opting just to be
Time the great leveler

Taking life to another plane
Or maybe just giving in

Being is to just be alive
Even when it is not to be
