Beyond Getting Ready

April 27, 2010

I approach death’s horizon
straining to see
what’s beyond
reaches out
a warning
be ready

ready to die? I’m just
beginning to live
I don’t even want to
think about it
there’s much too much
to do

did I consciously choose to exist
how do I know what to want
after death? while I’m still breathing
the best
is yet
to come
