Die we must all someday,
Live we must all today….
Those who must, live and die;
An equal tie that my soul defy!
A genesis it is to live or to die,
Over it, I wonder, a foe or an ally?
Pondering, I’m a fool you see..
No one knows more than me!
If the stars must live in eternity
If the sun can sail with temerity
Old man time then trudges on
Just forever I’ll follow the dawn!!
Take me through the door,
Of the warm darkened floor…
Intrigued, wondering, askance;
To live or to die, which is a chance?
