NaPoWriMo 2016 Day 20

Just One Life

Just one life
We are given to
Try to make 
Sense of how
Justify why and know where
One brief feeble chance

Just one life
Oh so much to do
Thirsts to slake
Senseless worry to forebear 
Of each laugh and dance

Just one life
Daily choices anew
For heartache
To allow
Joy or worry time to snare
Hinder or enhance

Just one life
But so much more you
See just take
A breath now
Energy of all you share
Not happenstance 

~ Ellen Apple 4/20/2016
