What Do I Do? - Poem by Doug Bentley

process is primary
asserted whitehead: *

evolution a certainty

but i'm in a bit
of an existential bind

right now for you see
my fate is to die

and the only question is -
what do i do?

    Fantastic, short and powerful.
    but i'm in a bit
    of an existential bind

    right now for you see
    my fate is to die

    and the only question is -
    what do i do?

    I share similar thoughts and question this often. (Report) Reply
