An Unfinished Life

what’s worse than death

an unfinished life

with regrets

life a life

worth living

dying leaving

nothing unfinished

only life worth living

is one to live for

dying to live

we all yearn for completion

yet it slips through our fingers

 like morning mist

all that is certain is this moment

the only life worth living

is to be fully human

creating a better world

with intent and actions

the elusive yet attainable

unfinished life

it’s worth it

live it!

The Feast of Life

this adventure called life

when does it start

when do we arrive

are we there yet

the journey commences

for the usual fee

can we stop to wallow

life says no

push on to prevail

reality is a beast

that we ignore at our peril

but ignore we must

immerse we must

in life we wallow

feast at the table

even if only for the crumbs

is there time

make time!

the table is always set

savour it

taste it

relish life

drink it in

smell the scent of lust

slay the beast

obey all the rules

you miss all the roses

strive to be drunk on life

long for the next adventure

then you will know

when you arrive
