Life, That Is
Syllable Poem in text and on video
What's the point of it?
Where does it lead to
- life, that is?
and we die with a sigh
- and then what?
- way too much.
What to make of life?
What kind of feat
would be sure to make it worth our while?
A deed, praised by all,
which will last as long as the world
- at least!
a path meant for each of us born,
a goal we must reach,
a prize we must seek,
for our time on this globe to count at all?
Games played with our heads, by our minds.
For sure, they play with us.
They trick us, and kick us,
and show us as fools,
torn to the bones.
more than our minds.
Some plan for it all.
- way more -
and still have no clue in sight.
It's a flame
that will burn all its fuel and be gone.
They come and they go,
and then theirs, who knows where?
It's a name,
just a name for the stuff we don't know.
I read some books, I play with words.
I hug a friend, and kiss a dream.
Now and then I don't.
In some way, by the end of the day,
it's all the same to me.
I will find what I should have done,
at the very time
when there's no time to do any more.
