On the Wonder of Life

Fragile, fragile life

Slips through the fingers of time

Yet what is the meaning?

Is there a meaning?

The answer is yes, maybe, no

The answer is what you make it

Is life to be passed unassuming?

Or must we work to be recognized?

Such a short time to be managed

Such a long, long time to be used,

How should we spend it?

And what should we do?

Such questions fill our minds

Whilst fragile, fragile life slips

Through the fingers of time.
