light up the heavens, torch it all
but why stop at the sky let the fire fall
down to the mountains and valleys and people and oceans and cities and lovers and forests and bodies and breath and dust and shadows
dust and shadows. . . except those don't actually burn very well
dust and shadows aren't worth saving.
but they aren't worth burning either.
so do they matter or don't they
if they're worth fueling fire
all that has life is destined to die. what's new.
but really, if something lasts forever, what is its value?
Thank God we don't live forever. Thank God there's a limit.
Thank God we have a chance to love life while we live it.
A chance to fight
A chance to cry
A chance to make
A chance to survive
to complete or to kill
we have free will
Some have twisted their chances to taint those of others
But you still have a chance
to rise up and recover
Someone gave it to us
is it really ignorant
To destine something to die
If life is better transient?
dying from dying from death and we live.
