Endure And Be

It whispers,

"It's coming",

And everything goes,

Everything turns.

But we are here,

Forced,

To endure and be,

Then nothing more.

Crying,

Cooing

Coughing,

Croaking.

Fighting,

Flirting,

Feral,

Finished.

To be,

And nothing more,

Is to be,

And nothing more.

A life to you,

A second to God,

A parent to yours,

No one to all.

Thoughts occur,

A way if formed,

Some abhor,

Some love.

Pain rings,

Rang again and again,

Though the sweet,

Is just the same.

Each life lived,

A life remembered,

Made of memories,

Forever recalled.

What can it be,

Nothing but ours,

To live,

Endure and be.

Please, hear!

Listen and learn!

Believe people,

As though they were gods;

Be kind,

Be alive.

You are yours,

To give selflessly,

To love all,

To be here.

That's all,

As best as you can do,

Just be,

And endure.
