FOREVER

I don’t want to live forever
Or defy death and time
And lack – like the baobab
Or re-launch like the grass,
In desperate grasp for life.

I don’t want to be a mountain
Waking up to a spot – millions of year
Yearning to roam the earth,
Cursed with longevity.

I don’t want the life of a star
Or the moon, or the everlasting
Warmth of the sun…
But I will leave no moment unlived
Not a second!
