The validity of this life we live
Because if something is true
Doesn’t that mean it stays?
Doesn’t that mean it belongs?
The purpose of this life we live
Because if something has reason
Doesn’t that mean it takes risks?
Doesn’t that mean it doubts?
The brutality of this life we live
Because if something draws blood
Does that mean the scars are worthy?
Does that mean it built a bridge?
The divinity of this life we live
Because if something is worthy of worship
Does that mean it’s infallible?
Does that mean it’s unconditional?
The vitality of this life we live
Because if blood flows through our veins
Does that mean we exist?
Does that mean we have purpose?
Doesn’t that mean we will survive this world?
Doesn’t that mean we are gods?
I suppose not.
