Life

October 15, 2006

Life is too powerful.

Small things cling to it

inseparably.

A spider will fight to the death for it.

A person will murder

other persons

for it.

~

Small things.

~

One’s life is invaluable;

others’ lives of no value at all.

Or at least, of little value.

~

Small things.

~

Value has no meaning,

but in life

meaning has no value.

Ironic, then,

to value one’s meaninglessness.

~

But life is strong,

and some things

cannot be changed.

Value is what stops life being taken –

no more could a spider

bite itself.

Only strength or ignorance

can overcome life,

and I have neither.

~

Still

death comes in many forms

and one day

a way will be found.

~

Small things.
