The tree does Live freely

Grows leaves; Flutters in the breeze;

Endures the storm;

Feeds from the earth and the sun

The apple tree doesn’t seem to worry

That the cherry tree is doing it all wrong

But I, being Life Creative,

Make up ways to fight the flow.

Make up meaning; make up trouble;

Make importance out of circumstance,

And ultimate importance out of

MY circumstance,

And supreme importance out of

Life happening as ME

I have sought long and hard

To make meaning out of life,

And see finally,

Now that my turn is almost over,

That I was simply Life

Struggling with Life,

Absorbed in Life,

At odds with Life,

Missing out on Life.
