We Are Accidents

Today, I was missed by a bullet fired by a sniper in Syria, a runaway train 10,000 miles from it, and every swing of the Grim Reaper’s scythe in between. A repeat of so many days of good coincidences. Life is but an accident of time and geography, we the beneficiaries of a random amnesty. Tomorrow, I shall rise and raise song unto the vaulting blue for my privilege of sun.
