Ten Life Times

An Anne G

Original Poem

Ten life times

As many as the fingers on your hands.

To comprehend, disseminate

the meaning of the universe.

Ten life times

As many as the digits of your toes.

To reason, think, hypothesize;

why you breathe this planets air.

Ten life times

Count them, one through ten.

To fly through space, distance, and time

a journey through the atmosphere.

Ten life times

Who knows the time that it will take.

To ponder, learn and figure out

the purpose of our time on earth.

Ten life times

To ask the what, and question why.

What is life?

Why are we here?

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
