What’s To Become of Us

I’m a stone’s throw from the belly of hell
From birth we begin the dying of flesh & bone
Some lives are shortened by incurable ills
Some walk the plank to a watery grave
Some are destined to bleed, internally rotten
Enthusiastically facing the future, some live long
one day at a time, taking both good & bad in stride
Some learn, some cling to stupidity

    1. Especially
      “Some walk the plank to a watery grave
      Some are destined to bleed, internally rotten
      Enthusiastically facing the future”
      It’s really striking. The difficulties of life.
