Poem: This Fragile Life by Steven Michael Pape

This Fragile Life
Steven Michael Pape
This fragile life
we bend and then break
cursing the decisions
we just had to make.

This fragile life
the eyes of the old
look behind them
to see a life untold.

This fragile life
run by machines
communication breakdown
of a micro-chip dream.

This fragile life
we ingest these poisons
to alter our minds
to the things that annoy us.

This fragile life
all these bitter pills
mass marketed to
beat off the winter chills.

This fragile life
as fresh soil now covers
someones Father
and someones Mother.

This fragile life
just like a child
running in circles
screaming so wild.

This fragile life
marble and dying flowers
washed all away
by the storm and showers.
