We’re All Gonna Do It

 

Watching someone

Interviewed

With ALS

Incurable

And fatal.

Thirty-eight;

She cries

We cry, and when

She laughs we smile –

We empathize,

Although

We know

She’s clad

In mourning.

 

How to comfort and be comforted:

The answer, that we’ll all be dead.

The question:

Are there answers? Do we need them?

Yes, to both.

There are.  We need them:

Philosophical, religious;

Abstract in our daily-ness;

We need them.

They exist.

But under answers notwithstanding

Stands one fact:

We all will fall…

All.
