It's OK

The writhing when you realize The life you have learned to love Is dialing down to it's demise And You know there's no god above. If you could do it all again, Make your life like you know you could. Could you make your life come to reign Over death and it's likelihood? Do beings really die at all? Does consciousness define your lives? Your body now in a free fall Sliced up by chemical knives. You share your essence with the rest. Blind watchmaker's everywhere. When one past version fails the test Time's hands see the best way to share. All was one and now one is all And all will be one now once more The waves of life rise up then fall On evolution's rocky shore.

Beautiful and bittersweet. The emotion in your words are quite moving. The introspection of the second stanza has wonderful depth and the questions are so apropos. The last stanza is brilliantly penned, I love everything about this. Excellent writing, a pleasure to read :-) Congratulations on the feature placement. blessings, lynn

What a beautiful first poem you wrote for PoetrySoup. It's sad, with acceptance of the inevitability. I love that second and the last stanza very much, good writing. Welcome to us all at Soup :)
