Long Lives

Man’s purpose seems only fulfilled
within a life lived long:
Strong men,
aristocrats,
men of war.
But suppose the
nine month old babe
dead the next hour,
clashing blocks with
awkward arms
in which we pity for its
innocence, simpleness,
a child “dead too soon”
already found happiness
within a life at dawn.
