Poem: Why Not Choose To Be Alive Today?

How long will I be alive?

It’ll never be long enough,

have been dead before,

I know how easy that is,

effortless, easygoing, undemanding,

so why be alive?

to breathe your own breath seems to difficult at times,

rather not take on that burden,

but each day we’re reborn,

are you going to stay dead? or be alive today?

I think,

chosen death far too many times,

I’ve got receipts to prove it,

so, let’s see what it’s like to be alive,

I say,

if it’s too much I’ll go back to being dead,

I reason.
