To Live and Die

written by: Anne G

@TheInkTruth

 

Born to live
destined to die

deafening cries
announce the light

Sweeping seasons
heartbeats pulse

departing souls
embrace the dark

Lives are shared
time not spared

heavens open
gates groan closed

To live
and die
awaken
sleep

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
