In this life, there is nothing to lose or to gain.
We arrive here asset-less, and that’s how we leave.
So, we’re profiting either way. That’s for damned sure.
Awareness that we’re mortal makes us insecure
If we act like we’re immortal. We self-deceive
If we think that forever we’ll sip the champagne.
To deal with insecurities is the issue.
And we know life is insecure and doesn’t care
That it is so. In fact, it’s the key attribute
Of the function of nature. It’s not to be cute.
We will croak if we’re laughing or steeped in despair.
Fearing dying prevents living well. It is true.
If I’ve come to avoid life, I shouldn’t be here.
I am here to experience what I came for.
If I try to not live life, I’ll be insecure.
It is then not a joy but a thing to endure.
I can feel my own value. I need nothing more.
Thinking that I do only re-welcomes my fear.
