.

At an early hour I

contemplate mortality.

I believe I am ready

in what ready means,

in what what eventual

means.

.

A lengthy gaze behind

goes farther than the distance

marked go. A life lived well

still dies.

.

Ready lives is in solid motives.

The past was a challenge lived in

how, in the way in which why lived

in how and in which when survived

as where.

.

Good is and will always be

relative. Greatness happened

unrecognized. Awe, like humility

as a view port, was norm most

hours awake. Dreams were for

ego vacations, rare or

transient.

.

I intend to contemplate mortality

a while longer. Transparency as

the glass portal out of now. I will

stand here a while longer and contemplate

the subtle pull from the infinite.

I like this line . may have to put a Trashcan poet twist to it sometime 


when I was younger I thought I was the baddest of the Bad ! or at least the top 5 . I was winning every fight I fought ,but in the back of My mind I could hear My grandfathers voice ..... Boy Someday you're going to find out even the toughest Fall Sometime .... It wasn't to long after that a guy who was scared Shot Me ! Talk about a let down . What The Hell I'm Mortal ! 

18 day's in the Hospital you have time to reflect  ..... The Key is to learn from it , Which I did not at least not till years later and a shit load of scares and and a couple more escapades involving dodging bullets 


Every story-teller bends the myth to his own purpose. that's why a Hero has a thousand faces

The Trashcan Twist

Sounds like a new dance.  Millennials wouldn't dig on that. ;D ~(:>)-

"I feel a subtle pull from the infinite" 

liked that line a lot. Contemplating mortality, I think beyond to the infinite. Just not ready for forever to never end. I guess that's the upside of mortal.

Upside Of Mortal

Extracting oxygen 

from near clean

air is a mortal action.

.

Shit happens

but mortally speaking

to pee or fart

is to live.

.

No pearly gate

seen on the horizon?

You're still this side

of mortal.
