Image for the poem Lived


Pretense is smothered just being
Indifference stabbed by the heart
An ignorant mind is shot

The old foundation is poisoned
Choking off food for sinister thought
As optimism drowns out sorrow

Pensively taking stock
Of the tormentous years lived
Wisdom gives serenity its due

Fantasy is a fading pastime
As death becomes forthcoming
As life is lived peace by peace

We have lived,
But it's today, or
We can always begin tomorrow
