This One Life

This is it,
the only chance for you to breathe,
in anger at the World seethe,
for its pollution and corruption,
for its moral degeneration.

This is it,
the only chance for you to work,
or responsibilities casually shirk,
to bring home the bacon or beyond,
to be the biggest in the fish pond.

This is it,
the only time to give your heart,
to someone who with it will not part,
to write a song of inexplicable passion,
on another’s life, one’s own to fashion.

This is it,
to bite and slurp and lactate on,
to argue, discuss and debate on,
to find what it means before it ends,
and to make peace or amends.

This is it,

the one life.
