A dance to the drum of life

A beat that is soundless but sound

Someone blinks.

Someone cries.

Someone laughs

While someone dies…

A thought in passing

The contemplation of a loaded gun

Or when to jump.

A sigh, a scream

A life is born

While another is taken.

An eternal metronome

A perpetual motion.

The beat dares not falter

To be or not to be…


That is the question.
