Life is awesome.

In peace
and striving enmity.

Bless it,
curse it,
marvel at it,

gather it up
and broad disburse it.

Take it for granted,
or be dumbstruck-startled at it,

Take it with your strongest stand,
lying down,
and on your knees.

Accept it,
challenge it,
throw it off,
and balance it,

Temper it
and revel in it,

Choose a way
your spirit form
can, hand in hand,
join with its wicked storms
to calm, appease,

and also,
rouse to rabble at it,

And even while
you, in a frenzy,
mix it up,
and regroup
(play Scrabble at it),
remember, too,
with your every living
and your “be all” dying breath
dying breath
to give it out
and let it in
and simply, deeply
let it be.
