staying alive

– who are we to write such things,
about heartbreak, about ending it all
bemoaning our lot, wailing our pain.

Oh, woe is me we cry,
– what luxury, what self-indulgence,
while others have no choice in the matter
but to endure the unendurable.

So hush now –
let’s see what tomorrow brings,
while staying alive.
