Poem: We Were Here





On a stroll with life, we took our turns

On a stroll with death, we raced back home

Seeking only to find reasons to live
We feed ourselves with others making them fill our lives
We draw nearer and yet never know how near
We seek that which must live after we are gone
We follow in steps we do not understand
We imitate only to be imitated
We hold on as the sun rises
We visit our past with our minds
We play the future with sounds
We dance and dance till time is gone
We have come and we must go
For though we were here, another must occupy the space we didn’t.
