Who’s to Say

Who's to Say

Who’s to Say

I should not be amongst them…
The living –
For I have seen the other side
On more than one occasion
All the odds against me –
Even time…
But who’s to say
Who lives and dies
Though I –
Most undeserved –
Wonder
In the light
Of each new dawn

I should not be amongst them…
The living –
For I am but a vagabond
Searching for the light
All the odds against me –
Even fate…
But who’s to say
Who lives and dies
Though I –
Most unpretentious –
Wonder
In the night
Who plays the pawn

I should not be amongst them…
The living…
For I have died a million deaths
And life
It seems
Is only an illusion…
But who’s to say
Who lives or dies
Though I –
Most dialectic –
Know –
The answer lies
Tween lines we’ve drawn

  1. A wonderful poem Micheal. Yes we are 99.9% empty space and the other percentage is the atom which is us….therefore if we pull the 0.1 % we cease to exist. Thus we can say that life is an illusion even though it seems so real to us and life but a chess game with one another. And our death is it preordained or like you saw when lines are drawn.

    • Good morning Joseph.
      I’ve read your comment three times now while enjoying my morning coffee. I so appreciate one who feels the depth within each of us instead of just reading the words. Perhaps our death is both of those… preordained – while the lines we draw just helps direct the fate into our breath…
      Hope you have a most beautiful Sunday and thank you for taking the time to ‘wonder’ along with me…

  2. You’re welocme Micheal. Always a pleasure to wander in your playground. I could’ve have wandered a little more as your touched on a lot of subject. To others the comment I wrote will have them look at me like I have four heads. Not on their journey to understand at this particular moment. My wish of a beautiful sunday is extended to you as well. Be well and stay smiling
