We Live (a poem)

We live within routine

Straying only when by force

Then reluctantly we walk

On paths fresh and new

 

But let one split second tear

And rip at our souls

To open our closed eyes

To an illuminating new truth

 

Death is death

And blood is blood

Which both in time will come

Taking hold of all

 

So before life fades

We mustn’t hesitate

To truly come to live

To see, to laugh, to love

Before our frailty does show through

 

Another piece from “Shadows and Shade,” one of the two poetry books by author and photographer Jason Greiner
