The whole, here today, gone tomorrow outlook on life Can make us seize the day with the gusto of a first year declared poetry major. Evoking ancient themes of love and loss, action and change, as if all our moments were monumental. Born of some epic story never to be forgotten. Meaningful, intentional and beautiful to behold. Or, the terrible waiting between the poetic beats, As we endure simply to survive, Can make us fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way. The apathy of permanence. The fleeting worry. The fleeting joys. The fleeting terror of fleeting moments. But these aspects of life that makes us aware of our brevity Ignore the larger story for pages that mention us by name. This idle skimming, this disjointed reading, Ignores the long shadows a life can cast We are all part of a much greater story. One that has evolved over billions of years. One that was once independent, That is now dependent on our monumental choices.
