The abstruse reckoning of life
Life is not short!
In fact life is lengthened long,
Long for seeds of grace to germinate and sprout in to emerald sprouts,
And the callow shrubs can grow into bushy bushes,
Life is adequate enough for an innocent boy,
To proceed into a man of substance,
For a beautiful girl to advance into a woman of wisdom,
Life is beyond the measure of time,
Life is not calculated by how many times you breathe
Life and time are entirely unalike,
Life is not a process of time,
Hence you will still live at the end of your time,
Oftentimes we get lost in the abstruse reckoning of life,
when we define life by the equivalence of discovering our purpose in life.
But life is further far away,
I wish I was odd enough to see beyond time what life is,
I wish I was blessed or cursed beyond measure to measure life by the measure of life,
But just like you I’m a small matter trapped inside the bigger picture
Because life is many things but one.
