Everday Poem by Kumiko Saito


Who I am, isn’t up to them.
Everyday is a celebration.
Everyday is a funeral.
Whether we accept it or not.

Whether we will admit or not.
We let people walk all over us.
The cycle of life,
That’s going on right now.

We have survived it, right?
Of course, so we can survive
It once more
Because we don’t always choose our destiny,

We live life to the fullest.
We can’t escape fate nor conceal it.
Whether it’s good or bad.
Happy or Sad.

We live through it.
Everyday.
