A Perspective

Living many lives in a lifetime,
Growing up in life, walking on the roads
Marked by conservative correctness 
Being aware of realism.
Yet nurturing the path of idealism,
Juggling behind the shadows of 
What we are and 
What we ought to be.
Clinging to the present 
That is inherently transitory.
Unknowingly ignoring 
The inevitable future
Faith in the capacity to alter
The direction of fate.
Confronting death in its varied forms
Rediscovering a certain purpose to live.
