near life

how much closer

to this earth

can you become today

how much further

have we wandered

to keep the end away

how much nearer is our life

than we can ever say

that the breathing in

and breathing out

is willing to purvey

so in keeping

with the sleeping

that we tend to do through life

have we caused so much weeping

so much struggle

so much strife

which has bound us more

to not exist

to bide our time

and wait

instead of embracing fully life

and trusting in our fate
