If there is- If there is not.

If there is
no promise
of a next
or some
everlasting life

would each
moment then be
savored as
exceedingly
precious?

If it took
an exact
precise primordial
soup of salt water
dancing proteins
and an artful stroke of
violent lightning
in randomness
and chaos
to cause
life here

and we are
but one
fantastic

anomaly

life never to be known
before to any star
and maybe never ever
a similar
confluence again

would you live
this life
without fear,
without hesitation?

Drinking deeply
from the cup of rasa
our cosmic
bliss birthright?

Or rather
squander it
in the fetid familiarity
of suffering

small
frozen
redundant
false
trapped
owned
bitter

resolute in
a self imposed
damp cool
concrete prison

only waiting to

exhale?

Ah
no.

I breathe deeply
into my abdomen
soft warm stardust
belly protrudes

one life as me
once that’s all

there are no
answers

~ just stories ~

before

silence.

  1. John Lennon Lyrics
    “Imagine”

    “Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today… Aha-ah…

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace… You…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will be as one”
