lack of life

to live 
is to eventually die
but live while
you are alive
dieing for a piece
of paper is not living
	better start
digging your hole

turning your back 
for paper
is as slaughtering 
horses 
filling your ears with 
gold and
 body with fur
is filling only 
vanity

to live
is to die, 
but die with dignity 
knowing you didnt 
live for the green
