Burns – Poem

Burns

As the world burns,

we watch,

our eyes resting against the horizon

comfortably sitting with soft smiles

watching the flames lick at the starless sky.

It is difficult to discern between the clouds and the smoke

as it often is,

 

In life we face so many perils

the hardships are difficult to distinguish the good from the bad.

We blindly amble

smiles on our faces,

moving toward the maw of oblivion

we enter the mouth of annihilation

and we are consumed

utterly destroyed

 

What then?

What happens next?

Are we are reborn?

Do we reemerge?

ready and willing to face life again

able to cope, to handle all of its challenges

overcome all of its hardships

rediscovering how to survive and journey

thrive and give up worry
