Poem: The Chattel of Life
The Chattel of Life
The chattel of life wears us down
maligning words, heinous crimes
life can be filled with many an estrangement.
Traveling roads to barren places
vacancy and corruption
filling the spaces with overwhelming malignancy
floating aimlessly in abstentia without connection.
The chattel of life and all its transgressions
makes us stronger
delivers us to the fortress of higher being
and its loftier goal, perseverance.
After its quake, survival--
the reaching of potential
surrendering oneself to the ubiquitous forces of the universe
The chattel of life..........
