Poetry: Life & Death

we live and breathe in the winds of change
but stand in stagnant waters all the while

we live and fight in revolutionary trenches
but lie in purified sheets all the while

we live and sleep in dreams of tomorrow
but face the sins of yesterday all the while

we live and move in breakneck queues
but stumble on our virtues all the while

we live and know our codified rituals
but smudge their boundaries all the while

we live and die in one complete circle
but pretend it’s a straight line all the while
